Art Performance Details

Orange Penguin Foundation's annual charitable Art Contest is a way to provide exposure to talented kids and amazing young artists. This festival's theme is "It's a Wonderful World". We invite children of age 18 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 their dreams and hopes are, what makes them happy, where their live, family and friends, how they see the world, and what they love most. Contestants are encouraged to express their feelings - happiness, joy, sadness, fear, pain, opinion, beliefs, and dreams. 

We also have a "bonus theme" in addition to the main topic: "Orange Penguin". 

 

Please note that the main goal of our festival is to promote creative and positive self- expressions of all children. Therefore, submitting your child's artwork to this festival's art competition is not about winning a prize but sharing your child’s artwork with a community of exceptional and talented young artists and art professionals. 

 

Each work of art will receive a brief commentary provided to the parent via e-mail after the event.
