Art Contest 2020
Children and youth from all over the world aged between six and 18 years participated in the PRIX JEUNESSE INTERNATIONAL Art Contest 2020. Almost 150 most creative art works were submitted dealing with this year’s festival topic „Listen to kids TV: THE POWER OF SOUND”. 33 artworks were chosen for the final round.
Nearly 150 children and youth from among others Montenegro, Mexico, Germany and the Philippines participated in the PRIX JEUNESSE INTERNATIONAL Art Contest 2020. They not only painted stunning pictures on the topic “Experiencing the Power of Sound and Music in film and TV. What does it do to you?” but also had the possibility to explain their artwork in an attached questionnaire.
The entries were divided into the three age categories “up to 8 years”, “9-13 years” and “14-18 years”. Afterwards, 33 finalists were determined in a pre-selection. The decision was tough as so much dedication is visible in all of the paintings. Besides creativity and technique, the preselection jury also considered the young artists’ individual stories behind the paintings.
In the next step, an international jury will choose the four most expressive and artistic pictures from each category. Finally, two main winners will be nominated.
For the fifth time the PRIX JEUNESSE Foundation is organizing an international art contest for children and youth related to its biennial festival. PRIX JEUNESSE INTERNATIONAL is one of the most renowned children’s TV festivals. It attracts over 500 TV producers from all over the world. The art contest always refers to the festival’s topic. This year’s topic is “Listen to kids TV: The Power of Sound”. The festival will be held from 5th to 10th June 2020 at the Bavarian Broadcasting Corporation in Munich.
