Peace Pals International organizes art exhibitions and awards artworks every year. The 2021 Art contest for the 24th Annual Peace Pals International Art Exhibition and Awards is conducted in celebration of World Kindness Day 2021. This year’s artwork must have the words, may peace prevail on Earth and follow the theme, Kindness. All the artwork for this contest must be sent by August 31, 2021, and winners will be announced on World Kindness Day during a special online live event with special guests on November 13, 2021. There are four age categories: Age 5-7, 8-10, 11-13, and 14-16. First-place winners will receive classic white peace pole, second place winners will receive 17” desktop peace pole, third place winners will receive 8” desktop peace pole, and all finalists will receive certificates & assorted prizes.
Art contests breed confidence among winners because putting yourself in a position where someone else is judging your works build up confidence in your creations and even in yourself as an artist. Moreover, entering competitions regularly is a powerful way to inspire yourself to continuously try and improve your skills. Along with that, you can update your portfolio by adding all the artworks you made for contests. Also, winning artworks in the portfolios have a great impact on the resumes.
