Contest Entry Guide

Theme: “Together, we are eco-friendly”
Please think about what people can do to protect our precious global environment.

In your picture, show things we can do in our daily life.

Below are just a few suggestions to help you get started. You could show ways of not wasting water or electricity. Or you could show how, by reusing and recycling products, we can more completely use the materials we get from our planet.

Perhaps you might want to show how using eco-friendly products can help to protect animals and plants in our important natural surroundings.

Picture size: Any child (aged 6 through 15 years old) from anywhere in the world.

Entry specifications
Picture size: Paper should be A3 size (297 mm × 420 mm), although pictures to a maximum size of 392 mm × 542 mm will be accepted.

Medium: Any means of direct drawing, painting, or coloring ‒ crayon, colored pencil, watercolor, acrylic or oil paint, ink, wood or linocut printing, etc. ‒ is allowed. However, works (collage) with pasted elements will not be accepted.

Creation: Only one entry per individual is allowed. Only previously unexhibited works created after January 2017 will be accepted.

Important advice: Your entry should show that you fully understood and incorporated the “Together, we are eco-friendly” theme into your work. However, the theme should not be presented as a catchy phrase or slogan but, rather, artfully expressed in your entry. Joint works will not be accepted.

- If the picture contains writing, it must not show the name of a specific person, group, trade name, or company. Similarly, do not show any company, brand, or group logo. Pictures showing such names or logos will be disqualified.

1) For each separate work, it is preferable to download an entry form from the Kao website and, using a print or copy, fill out the required information and affix the completed entry form to the centre on the back of the picture.

Artist: full name, age, school year grade and class, contact e-mail address, and phone number if available.
