Turkish Airlines school art competition
School students in Nepal, would you like to win a trip to your dream destination anywhere in the world by entering an art competition?
If you are a Nepali school student aged 13-19, enter the themed art competition, ‘Flying with Turkish Airlines: Dream Destination’. The winner will receive a return economy class ticket of Turkish Airlines to his or her dream destination, along with a ticket for one adult.
‘The objective is to highlight the students’ artistic talents through fine art, to promote reflective and critical thinking regarding the visual arts and at the same time support students in building their dreams,’ the airline said in a statement.
The contest runs from 27 May - 31 July 2019 and will be managed by Glocal Pvt Ltd in collaboration with Turkish Airlines. It will be featured on Glocal Teen Hero 2019, an online platform to recognise teenagers’ initiation, creativity and enthusiasm,and to empower young people.
Students’ entries for the competition can be drawings or paintings. Only one entry per person is permitted, and it must be submitted electronically in a good quality format (JPEG, PNG or PDF) to the school principal, who will then select the best five to send via email to [email protected] with full name, address and contact number.
The art work should include the title: Flying with Turkish Airlines – Your Dream Destination (Country Name). All works submitted must be original, no plagiarised art will be accepted, and the airline suggests that the artist should try to portray the theme along with a Turkish Airlines aircraft.
The selection of the winner will be done by a panel of the Turkish Airlines team based in Kathmandu, using criteria like relevance to the theme, visual effectiveness and aesthetics, originality and the message.
