Fifteen-year-old Ukrainian Victoriia won the twelfth annual international art contest for children, schoolchildren and students, which was organized by the non-profit organization Space Foundation with the support of the Noosphere Venture Partners Foundation.
Children, pupils and students aged 3 to 18 from all over the world had the opportunity to take part in the contest. This year, the contest participants created original works of art on the theme “Live, work and play on the Moon”. The organizers of the contest received 6,000 applications from 82 countries.
The international jury, which included entrepreneur and patron from Zaporizhia Max Polyakov, selected 25 winners: three winners in each of the eight age categories and a separate Space Foundation Achievement Award. The award for artistic achievement was given to Victoriia.
Noosphere has been supporting the International Art Competition organized by the Space Foundation for 4 years. Thanks to such support, the Space Foundation creates an opportunity for children, pupils and students to explore space through artistic understanding and thus develop the interest of the younger generation in it.
“Space is the future of humanity. Space is also an eternal source of inspiration and curiosity,” said Max Polyakov, Founder and Managing Partner of Noosphere Ventures. “It is a great honor for me to help develop the interest of a new generation in space exploration and give them the opportunity to paint a picture of possible life on the Moon. On behalf of Noosphere, I congratulate all the winners, and I am especially glad to note the success of Victoriia from Ukraine, the winner in the Achievement Award nomination.”
The works of the winners of the contest can be seen in the gallery of the International Student Art Contest website, and all the submitted works can be viewed here. As a reward for their talent, the winners will receive an autograph of an astronaut, a certificate and an art kit. In addition, the winners’ works will decorate the headquarters of the Space Foundation and the Discovery Center.
