UN Gallery
“UN Children’s Art Competition” Exhibition

Press Release 06-075-E 2006.11.22

Starting on Friday, 1 December to Celebrate 50 Years of the Japan-UN Relationship

This year marks the 50th anniversary of Japan’s entry into the United Nations. To celebrate the occasion, the United Nations Information Centre organized a “UN Children’s Art Competition” this summer in cooperation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and The Mainichi Newspapers.  Under the theme “The World Where Everyone Can Smile,” it provided an opportunity for children to think about their relationship with the UN, asking them to draw pictures on global challenges facing the world, including poverty elimination, disaster prevention and environmental conservation.

Some 1,000 entries were received from elementary school, junior, and high school students. From among the inspired drawings, a jury of five professionals impartially selected the winner of the grand prize (Foreign Minister’s Prize), as well as 15 winners of various awards in each category: elementary school, junior, and high school.

A total of 47 works by contest winners will be displayed at the UN Gallery in Shibuya, Tokyo, from Friday, 1 December 2006 to Monday, 15 January 2007, and an award ceremony will be held on Saturday, 9 December. We hope these drawings will help convey children’s wishes and messages to the United Nations and to the world.
