2012 Art for Peace Contest
1 February – 30 April 2012

Who Can Enter

Youth who are between 5 and 17 years of age can enter this contest, and it is open to all children and teens in all countries.

How to Enter

You can draw, paint, sketch, use pens, pencils, crayons, charcoal, oil, acrylic paint or watercolor to create your artwork. Be creative, and use your imagination to show a world free of nuclear weapons, a world without bombs, without wars, without fear.

To enter this contest, all participants are encouraged to watch a short film online, and then create your own artwork based on the content of the film and the theme of the contest. Different films are available for different age groups. Please visit http://www.unartforpeace.org to watch the films. When you are there, you can also upload a photo or scanned file of your artwork onto our web site.

Once your artwork is posted, your family, friends and anyone else will be able to share your work via Facebook and other social media.

Parents and Teachers

Children between the ages of 5 and 12 will need to have their parents or teachers help them with their submissions.

Contest Prizes

There will be 4 winners in each age category (ages 5-8, ages 9-12 and ages 13-17), and all the art work entries will be judged using the same criteria: creativity, composition, theme and technique. The winners will be announced before the end of May 2012. For age groups 5-8 and 9-12, the winners will receive wonderful art supplies.

For age group 13-17, there will be cash prizes of $500 for first place, $300 for second place, $200 for third place, and $100 for fourth place.

Each winning entry will also receive a certificate from the United Nations and all winning artwork will be reproduced in a United Nations calendar.


All art works must be original, and the UN retains all copyright of the materials submitted. Files uploaded to the contest website should not contain photographic images of the contestant nor other personal information.


The UN shall not be responsible for any loss or damage that may occur by entering this contest and the UN reserves the right to make changes to the rules of the contest without prior notification.
