Once all the finalists’ artworks are on display, a public vote will open here on the campaign website. The entrant who receives the most votes will be announced as the overall champion and their artwork will be displayed for another campaign between Monday, September 23 – Sunday, October 6, 2019.


In addition to priceless public recognition of their work, the winner will receive BIC® stationery goodies and a creative art party.





Entrants are encouraged to draw with as much freedom and creativity as possible. In order to pick the eventual winners, the judging panel will award marks for:


Creativity and use of colour – Why can’t the sky be orange? Is the artist seeing in technicolour?

Good composition and artistic ability – How is space used and technical ability demonstrated?

Interesting subject matter – Is there a story? Does it show emotion?
