The theme of the competition is “Days after COVID-19”
For the welfare of the people with special needs during the COVID-19, CHILD Foundation has organized an online-based art competition titled “Art from Home”.
As soon as lockdown was imposed in the country, all services and activities afforded to the people with special needs, including education and essential medical treatment came to a halt. In addition to various physical issues, mental illness has also flared up amid the pandemic.
In order to make quarantine a little more colourful, creative and productive, this competition has been organized and is only open for people with special needs. Participants will be able to showcase their skills on painting and drawing in three age-based categories.
The theme of the competition is “Days after COVID-19”. Internationally renowned artists Monirul Islam, Abdus Shakur and Kanak Chanpa Chakma will evaluate the submissions. In this 14-day long competition, artworks will be collected for the competition during the first seven days and in the next seven days the selected artworks will be displayed from the official Facebook page of CHILD Foundation for public voting.
Based on the number given by judges and maximum “likes”, “comments” and “shares”, three winners will be selected from three categories.
Child foundation is a non-political and non-profit organization in Bangladesh working with the goal to provide all forms of support to children, youth and adults with special needs, building an inclusive society with equal opportunity for all.
