    The FAI Young Artists Contest is an international art contest for youngsters between the ages of 6 and 17. Each FAI Member Country sponsors the contest in their country, and the national winners are submitted to the International Jury each year.

    The theme for the 2018 edition is "Flying in the future".

    To enter the contest, young people must first contact the FAI Member in their country and check with them the deadline to submit their drawing. They must then send their artworks to their FAI Member. The participating FAI Members will each make a selection of the three best artworks in each category and send the chosen artworks to the FAI International Office by April 1, 2018.

    Entries will be judged in three categories:

    Junior Category (date of birth between 1 January 2008 and 31 December 2011)
    Intermediate Category (date of birth between 1 January 2004 and 31 December 2007)
    Senior Category (date of birth between 1 January 2000 and 31 December 2003)

    All artwork must be done by hand or, in the case of handicapped children, by foot or mouth. Any of the following media are permitted: Watercolor, Acrylic, Oil paint, Indelible marker pens, Felt-tip pens, Soft ball-point pens, Indelible ink, Crayola, or any similar indelible medium.

    No pencil, charcoal or other non-permanent media may be used. No computer-generated artwork and no collage work involving the use of photocopies is permitted. The required format is A3 (297 x 420 mm or 11 3/4 X 16 ½ inches) or, if this is unobtainable in your country, the nearest possible equivalent. Artwork must not be framed or outlined with borders.

    There is no entry fee.

    Eligibility


    All children in the three age groups are encouraged to participate in the Contest, even if they are related to officials or employees of the FAI or any of its member organisations. Participation in the National contests is limited to residents of that country.

    Prize


    The winners in each age group will receive Gold, Silver and Bronze Medals, together with diplomas. These medals and diplomas will be sent to the FAI Member organisations in the appropriate countries as soon as possible after judging is completed. The FAI delegates from the countries concerned will be responsible for arranging a suitable occasion for the presentation of the awards.
