Conditions of the 16th International Contest of Art and Graphics “In My Homeland”

The Non-governmental Organization “Green Cross Belarus” in collaboration with the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Culture and the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environmental Protection of the Republic of Belarus supported by the International Art Public Organization (IAPO) “Union of Artists-Teachers” announces the 16th International Contest of Art and Graphics “In My Homeland”

The current situation in the world is forcing most people in many countries to change their customary way of life. In the near future we are likely to postpone our travel plans, to keep social distance and, consequently, spend weekends and holidays close to home surrounded by immediate family only. However, these restrictions provide us with an opportunity to pay attention to things around us that we never used to notice, to do things we never used to have time for or just to dream. Now we can unhurriedly look around and discover themes, ideas and objects for creative activity right near us: in small towns, suburbs and villages, i.e. wherever we happen to be staying at the moment. But the big lesson we must learn from this experience is appreciate our relatives and friends, understand how important and valuable live communication is for us all.

You are offered three topics to choose from:

“In My Homeland” is a traditional free topic of the Contest.

“In the Garden and in the Kitchen Garden”

“A Trip Outside My Village”
