Submit your artwork for the IFAW Youth Art Contest
Artwork by Keeley, age 12, Australia / Gina, age 17, United States / Mihnea, age 12, Romania
IFAW is excited to announce the 2024 World Wildlife Day (WWD) International Youth Art Contest. To celebrate and acknowledge this year’s theme, we’re adding a digital art category to the contest. Contestants can enter either with traditional art mediums (hand using markers, crayons, colored pencils and/or paint) or digital art (created with illustration software). The contest is open to youth artists aged 4-18.
We ask that participants choose a species that benefits from innovative technologies, such as camera traps, tracking collars/tags, and more. The art does not need to portray these devices, just highlight the species for which these methods are in use. Parents are welcome to research such methods with their student artists. Once the artist has decided on a species, they may depict it as an individual animal portrait or in its native habitat.
All contestants have until February 6, 2024 to submit their work. All entries must be submitted electronically. The finalists and winning entries will be presented at the United Nations WWD event on 4 March 2024.
