2018 Kids Art Contest – Saving Life in the Rainforest

Calling all children ages 3-17!
Announcing the 9th Annual Kids Art Contest!

Hosted by Frogs Are Green

We will award winners in these age groups: 3-6, 7-9, 10-12, 13-17. We also add categories based on what we receive, such as: Best 3D; Best Environmental; Best Student/Elder Collaboration; and Best Black and White. Awards are given to 1st place, 2nd place, 3rd place and honorable mention in each age group.

Deadline for submissions is December 15, 2018 and the winners will be announced by January 31, 2019. The winners will be featured in a blog post. Many of the submitted artworks are shared online, through our website, social media and in awareness materials. (By entering, you grant Frogs Are Green permission to use your artwork for these purposes. Credit to artists will be included.)

 

1st Place Prizes:

This year, the 1st place winners in each age group will receive these prizes: The custom designed “Frogs Are Green” Strawesome glass straw; their winning artwork on a t-shirt provided by Big Frog Custom Shirts; and a copies of Frogs Are Green‘s newest books.

This year’s theme is… Saving Life in the Rainforest!

Yes, children can draw any amphibian or reptile! Turtles, salamanders, frogs, snakes, lizards, and more! They can also draw rainforests, wildlife in trees or water, or how they feel about climate change, pollution, deforestation, drought, natural habitats, etc… and how you (or all of us) can help the environment. Here are a few links to provide much need information and photos for reference:

To enter the contest, you join the kids art contest group (and the right age group) on Flickr and just upload your high resolution entries. Each child can submit up to 3 artworks. Teachers can upload student’s work and parents can upload their children’s work. If you are in a country where you cannot view Flickr, you can email your digital image to Frogs Are Green along with the child’s name, age and country, and we will add the image to the group. If you wish to see all the images in the gallery, you must join Flickr.

 

Each entry MUST INCLUDE the Child’s Name, Age, and Country (and a caption if you like) or your submission cannot be judged. If entering the student/elder collaboration we’ll need the Elder person’s name and age also. Be sure your entry is facing upright and not sideways! You can easily edit and turn an artwork once it’s on Flickr.

 

Here’s a video that shows how to enter:
