KUWAIT: Sup­ported by the Aus­tralian Em­bassy, in co­op­er­a­tion with the Kuwait Times, the em­bassy is proud to launch the “Colours of Aus­tralia” draw­ing com­pe­ti­tion for stu­dents in Kuwait. The com­pe­ti­tion will have stu­dents in Kuwait learn more about dif­fer­ent coun­tries, cul­tures and civ­i­liza­tions, and to iden­tify com­mu­ni­ties in other parts of the world through arts. The theme for the Arts com­pe­ti­tion is “Colours of Aus­tralia” to en­cour­age stu­dents to ex­press their knowl­edge of Aus­tralia by draw­ing an icon, a nat­u­ral scene, or any other ex­pres­sion they would find suit­able. The com­pe­ti­tion is still open for all schools who want to par­tic­i­pate.

The draw­ing com­pe­ti­tion is held from De­cem­ber 12, 2016 till Jan­uary 26, 2017 for a pe­riod of forty six days, al­low­ing par­tic­i­pants from gov­ern­ment, spe­cial needs, pri­vate schools and bilin­gual schools enough time to sub­mit their work.

At the due date, the draw­ing sheets will be col­lected by Kuwait Times, and a jury of pro­fes­sional artists will be se­lected from the Kuwait Arts As­so­ci­a­tion, who will choose the top ten win­ners of each age group. The con­test is open to both boys and girls as fol­lows: Ele­men­tary (6-9 years ) In­ter­me­di­ate (11-13 years), Se­condary (14 years and above), in ad­di­tion to schools of spe­cial needs.

Valu­able prizes, in­clud­ing phones and tablets, will be awarded to the top 10 en­trants in each cat­e­gory. Three ma­jor win­ners will be se­lected in each cat­e­gory who will be given a plaque and ma­jor prizes, while the re­main­ing seven run­ner­sup will re­ceive cer­tifi­cates and prizes. A cer­tifi­cate will also be given to the school as recog­ni­tion of hon­ourable par­tic­i­pa­tion. The com­pe­ti­tion is spon­sored by VIVA and the Aus­tralian Col­lege of Kuwait, with the awards event to be hosted by Crowne Plaza Ho­tel “Al-Thu­raya City”.
