PAINT­ING COM­PE­TI­TION FOR NO­BEL LAU­RE­ATE WEEK

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

On the oc­ca­sion of the No­bel Lau­re­ate Week, the Em­bassies of Spain and Mex­ico in Saint Lucia will hold a paint­ing com­pe­ti­tion en­ti­tled “A Pic­ture for a No­bel”.

Par­tic­i­pants are re­quired to cre­ate a paint­ing or a photo (us­ing any tech­nique) whose cen­tral theme con­veys their feel­ings evoked by a poem of one of the fol­low­ing No­bel Prize Win­ners for Lit­er­a­ture: Oc­tavio Paz of Mex­ico, Juan Ramón Jiménez of Spain and Derek Wal­cott of Saint Lucia (see the rules of the com­pe­ti­tion).

The paint­ings should be sub­mit­ted to the Em­bassy of Mex­ico, lo­cated on Nel­son Man­dela Drive, Vigie, Cas­tries, no later than the 15th Jan­uary, 2016.

A panel of judges se­lected by of­fi­cials of the Em­bassies of Mex­ico and Spain will then choose the best paint­ing or photo rep­re­sent­ing each cat­e­gory.

Dur­ing the No­bel Lau­re­ate Week cel­e­bra­tions there will be a lit­er­ary soirée in which the win­ning paint­ings will be an­nounced and also an ex­hi­bi­tion of the other par­tic­i­pat­ing art pieces.

The win­ning paint­ings will be show­cased in the Em­bassies of Mex­ico and Spain in Saint Lucia as well as in gov­ern­ment of­fices of each coun­try in Mex­ico City and Madrid.
