Drawings and paintings must be done on a white Bristol board measuring 45cm by 30 cm.
According to Public Relations Officer for the Mexican Embassy in Belize Marcelino Miranda, participants can bring their paintings or drawings to life by using brushes, pencils, acrylics, water paints, crayons or any other medium.
Participants are asked to sign and date their works. Participants’ full names, ages, date and place of birth, address, contact number and school’s name must be written at the back of the painting or drawing.
Drawings or paintings should be submitted before May 2nd, 2011 to the Embassy of Mexico in Belmopan, the Institute of Mexico in Belize City or the Mexican Honorary Consulate in Corozal. A panel of Mexican experts in children’s art will select the winning drawing or painting. The winner will be announced on May 11th, 2011 though the Mexican Embassy.
