Art Competition 2021
Peace for People organized an Art Competition based on the theme: Covid-19, Education and Students targeting the age group of 13 to 19 years old. The main motive to organize completely different events this year was to explore and showcase the hidden creativity of teenagers, who were stuck and feeling dull during this COVID-19 pandemic. Moreover, the event had the aim of addressing mental health which had been vulnerable to anxieties and fatigue because of the ongoing situation.
An online call for the application of participation was made via the Facebook and Instagram pages of Peace for People. A total of 53 art entries were received from all over Nepal for the competition. The competition was judged by two Jury members: Simon Ensor, a professor at the University of Clermont Auvergne, France, and Sharad, an independent painter and theatre artist of Nepal. The result was based on 50% Jury’s evaluation and 50% of social-media voting (Likes, Shares, and Comments).
