Poster competition entries closed at end of April
Primary and secondary school students are invited to show their creativity by taking part in a graphic design competition that runs in conjunction with the International Arts Carnival.
The closing date for submitting entry forms and works is April 30. All entries should be sent to the Festivals Office of the Leisure and Cultural Services Department at 5/F, Administration Building, Hong Kong Cultural Centre, 10 Salisbury Road, Kowloon, during office hours.
The competition, to design a poster promoting the International Arts Carnival, is aimed at arousing students' interest in design and fostering their creativity.
Running from July 14 until August 29, the arts carnival, organised by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD), will offer a range of entertainment and educational activities throughout the summer. Performances will include music, dance, drama, puppetry, mime, acrobatics and film. Events such as outdoor fun days, outreach activities, workshops, a youth series, exhibitions and guided tours will also be held.
The competition is divided into two sections: primary and secondary schools. Submissions can be made on an individual or team basis and each entrant may submit more than one design. The work should illustrate the aims of the carnival and encourage children and their families to enjoy the events together.
The size of work should measure 59cm by 42cm for the primary school section, and 76cm by 51cm for the secondary school section.
The adjudication panel consists of art educationists, design professionals and representatives of the International Arts Carnival.
Each award winner will receive a trophy. The winner of each section will be awarded a book voucher worth $1,500. The first and second runners-up will receive a book voucher worth $1,200 and $800 respectively. The overall winner will be awarded an additional $500 book voucher. Five outstanding entries in each section will receive a $500 book voucher.
