Around the world together with young artists

On 30th of March 2017 the awarding of winners and prize-winners of the international competition «I see the world: traveling around the world!» was held at the Russian state children's library.

The theme of the competition was dedicated to the year of Ecology. Realizing an exhibition project, the organizers wanted to attract the attention of its participants to the urgent problems of environmental protection.

The competition had great interest: young artists from Russia, Bulgaria, Italy, Kazakhstan, Mozambique, Serbia and Turkey sent their works to the competition. As a result – 3060 children's drawings were submitted. The youngest participant was 3 years old. The age of the oldest – 17 years old. Despite the significant difference of ages all the works of young artists were brought together by the desire to keep the beauty of nature and comprehension to preserve the beauty around us.

The contest formed XXVII traveling exhibition of children's drawings, which is annually organized by the Institute of art education and cultural science and the International Union of teachers-artists with the support of the Russian state children's library. During the year children's work will travel from city to city of Russia. Organizers and exhibitors hope that inspired by the works viewers will become the participants of the exhibition next year.
