The call for applications is now open!
CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: Poster competition World Food Day Poster Contest is opening entries inviting all children and teens from 5 to 19 years old to use their imaginations and express their ideas on the World Food Day theme: "Change the future of migration. Invest in food security and rural development."
Large movements of people today are presenting complex challenges, which call for global action.
People are fleeing their homes due to conflict and political instability, hunger, poverty, and an increase in extreme weather events linked to climate change. The situation calls for urgent global action.
Many migrants come from rural areas where three quarters of the extreme poor survive on agriculture or other rural activities. We need to create conditions that give rural people the choice to stay home, when they feel it is safe to do so.
This Poster Contest is divided into four categories:
• ages 5 to 8
• ages 9 to 12
• ages 13 to 15
• ages 16 to 19
Only 1 entry should be submitted per person.
Poster entries may be drawn, painted or sketched using pens, pencils, crayons or charcoal, or using oil, acrylic or watercolour paint, as well as mixed media.
Digitally created artwork is also permitted. No photographs are allowed.
Poster entries may or may not include text. If text is used, no more than 25 words or 100 characters can be accepted.
For Chinese and Japanese languages, the maximum number of characters permitted is 40.
Languages permitted include: English, French, Spanish, Arabic, Chinese, Russian, Italian and Japanese.
Working on an A4 sheet or an 8 ½ inches by 11 inches sheet is recommended, to make it easier for you to scan and upload your poster design.
If your poster is larger, you may have to take a digital photo of the work and upload the photo file.
Only digital files saved as a JPEG will be accepted.
15 posters in each category will be selected for the shortlist by the screening committee before 27 November 2017. Shortlisted candidates will receive a certificate for this achievement.
Three winners in each age category will be selected by the jury. The results will be announced on the World Food Day website and FAO social media.
