Young artists called on to compete in World Wildlife Day contest

All artists ages 4 to 18 are invited to enter an art contest in celebration of World Wildlife Day.

The International Fund for Animal Welfare is hosting its third annual global youth art contest in collaboration with the Secretariat of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora and the United Nations Development Program.

This year’s contest theme is “Forests and Livelihoods: Sustaining People and Planet” and is aimed at shedding light on the importance of forest ecosystems for animals, like woodlands and rainforests, and to honor Indigenous people around the world who have acted as guardians of the land for centuries.

Twelve finalists will have their artwork featured on IFAW’s website and the grand prizewinner will be recognized as part of the official World Wildlife Day virtual event on March 3.

Submissions will be accepted through February 7 at:
