The paintings and drawings which will be chosen will be printed on postcards and some of them on T-Shirts. The paintings chosen will participate from time to time to one or more exhibitions.
How to participate
The subject of the competition is “Running is a game, it’s fun!” "Running with our friends is an even greater joy!”
Draw or paint your gymnastics lesson or images from some race you have already participated in.
If you like, paint yourselves, your friends, your mum, your dad, your grandma or your grandpa, your aunt, your uncle, your cousins, your schoolmates, your neighbors or people you have been running together as a group.
Older children can make collages with photos, words, quotes from newspapers and magazines. Thus, they can also make their ideas reality.
