Competition Deadline: 12 August, 2020 (International Youth Day)
Inviting all budding artists between the ages of 10-18 from around the world, from Indonesia to Kenya, Fiji to Mexico, to join the SHE IS MORE Global Youth Art Competition and celebrate the voice, value and courage of women!
The Competition welcomes both visual and performing artists from all walks of life to submit their original work for the opportunity to be exhibited online at an internationally-recognized art gallery, win a special Grand Prize, and be featured on IIX Foundation’s publicity channels that reach over 40 million people worldwide.
SHE IS COURAGE
This year’s theme is SHE IS COURAGE because SHE is the catalyzer of COVID-Resilience.
This can be expressed however you like – from women who are courageously protecting our people and planet, to courageous women who are at the frontlines of building a safer and more equitable tomorrow.
Collaborate with your loved ones at home (Mom, Dad, Sister, Brother, Grandma, Grandpa), maybe even your furry friends. Paint/draw/dance to celebrate the important roles of women in this time of crisis and why we should honor their contributions.
