The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) is looking for young artists ages 5 to 17 to enter the World Food Day Poster Contest 2012!
The theme of this year’s contest is “Agriculture cooperatives – key to feeding the world.”
Entries are due no later than September 30, 2012. Poster entries may be drawn, painted or sketched using pens, pencils, crayons or charcoal, using oil, acrylic or watercolor paint. Digitally created artwork is also permitted.
Three winners will be selected in three age cagtegories – 5-8, 9-12, and 13-17 – and winners will be announced on World Food Day, October 16, 2012. The top three poster designs in all three categories will be published on the World Food Day website, and shared through Facebook accounts and the EndingHunger movement. Winners will receive certificates of recognition, while first-place winners will also receive a T-shirt and surprise gift!
