Mumbai: The Council for Fair Business Practices (CFBP) with the Niki Hingad Art Foundation (NHAF) and Rotary Club Of Midcity, District 3141, has announced the commencement of its 8th annual online pan-India inter-school drawing competition 2019 titled ‘Perception’ and is inviting entries from schools and students from all over the country to participate. The subjects of the art competition are aimed at inculcating the idea of spreading awareness regarding social causes amongst children.
Participants can submit their paintings under any or all of the four themes- My World (My perception of an ideal world), The Right to a Healthy Life (Cancer- awareness), Save Water and Surrealistic World. The artwork is required to be hand painted in any choice of medium in colors and base materials and submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com on or before May 7.
“Art is a product of set beliefs, traditions and thinking across the world. Through this initiative, we hope to encourage all young artists to become socially aware of their environment and advance their knowledge about the right to lead a healthy life. We believe that art is a sole journey from an artist’s mind to the heart and has its own language of self-expression. This year’s themes are aimed at seeking subjective interpretations of children’s perspectives through their paintings,” says Niki Hingad, Founder, NHAF.
The competition is divided into two phases. In the first phase, NHAF will receive the painting(s) from the participants, duly attested by their schools, along with other relevant information via email. In the second phase, the selected entries will be informed and these students will then have to courier the original paintings to the NHAF Office in Mumbai, which will be evaluated. All results will be declared by May 15 through print and social media, CFBP-NHAF’s Facebook page and website (www.nhaf.co.in).
All selected paintings in the second phase of the competition will compete for the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and consolation positions. The entries will be segregated age-wise in four categories including ‘Veni A’ consisting of children between ages 5 and 7 years, ‘Veni B’ between 8 and 10 years, ‘Vidi’ for students aged 11 to 13 years and Vici for 14 to 17 year olds. All paintings are to be duly attested by students’ respective schools and accompanied with the student’s name, age, competition category (Veni A, Veni B, Vidi or Vici), topic, address, contact number(s), email ID, school name, school’s email ID and student’s recent age ID proof.

About Niki Hingad Art Foundation
NHAF commemorates the success of 15 years in the world of children art education. The foundation aims to create a difference in the world of art by rejecting all old banal practices of art introduction amongst children, which we claim to kill the creativity of a child, who is a born artist. Instilling the idea of art without boundaries, NHAF’s aim is to ignite an immense interest in the perception of art in the younger generation. These activities are held in various schools and in various nature camps. They include special artist level courses in Sketching, Charcoal, Calligraphy, Pen and Ink, Clay modeling, Water colors, Acrylic colors, Landscape, Portraits, Still life, Sculptures, etc. All children as from 5 – 17 years are benefitted with all these courses.
