Advena World organizes the 2017 International Children’s Art Competition to provide exposure to talented kids and amazing young artists. We invite children of age 15 and under from all over the world to submit their drawings, paintings, photos, and other original artworks filled with ideas that describe their understanding of the world, what they adore, their dreams, their environments, family and friends, and important events.
An Important Note to Contestant’s Parents/Guardians: Advena World’s mission is promoting creative and positive self- expressions. Contestants are encouraged to express their feelings – happiness, joy, sadness, fear, pain, opinion, beliefs, and dreams – and expand Advena World community of amazing young artists. Therefore, submitting your child’s artwork to the International Children’s Art Competition is not about winning a price but sharing your child’s artwork with a worldwide community of exceptional and talented young artists.
