CHILDREN'S ART CONTEST

Our art contest is back by popular demand! Italian Week is inviting Ottawa’s children and youth ages 4 to 17 to submit artwork inspired by what they love about Italian culture.

 

GRAZIE TO THE ITALIAN EMBASSY IN OTTAWA FOR SUPPORTING THE CHILDREN’S ART CONTEST 

“WHERE THE SPIRIT DOES NOT WORK WITH THE HAND, THERE IS NO ART.”

Leonardo da Vinci

We encourage children and youth ages 4-17 to submit their creations celebrating Ottawa’s Italian culture and heritage. Your submissions will be featured on social media — Tag us!

The deadline to submit is Friday, June 4, 2021. After all the entries are received, a judging committee will select the winners.  

To make this accessible for all, we ask that all artwork be made on a standard letter size paper (8.5”x11”). Children and youth can use pencil crayons, paints, pastels, or mixed media. Take a photo with your artwork and submit it along with a completed form
