Competition details


We want to get people around the world talking about biodiversity – the animals, plants, and bacteria that comprise life on Earth. And that’s why we need you! We need your artwork – whether it’s a painting, collage, drawing, etching…we want you to somehow showcase biodiversity of the place where you live.

We are calling on talented kids and teens (ages 5-18) to make artwork depicting your local biodiversity. At each of our competition locations (in 2018, the Philippines and Ireland), a judging panel will select the top 10 artworks, which we will turn into postcards. We are hopeful that these postcards – posted to destinations across the world – will raise awareness of the fantastic creatures and plants we’ve got here on Earth.


Who can submit

Generally, our competitions are open to kids & teens (between ages of 5 and 18)


What are we looking for?

Your artwork! Whether you paint, draw, etch, screen print, etc., we would love to see it! Please submit on an A4 sheet of paper (or smaller) for scaling and printing purposes. Your artwork must represent biodiversity in some way.
