January - February - March Art Contests

We have some wonderful art contests coming up. Each issue of Women in Art 278 (as of the December cover) will feature a theme inspired by a global issue. Why? Because as women and global citizens, it's important to keep global issues in the forefront of our minds because this world belongs to our children and who are we to leave it in worse shape than when we got it from our parents? (Much love to non-parents as well. Women absolutely can decide whether to have a family or not. We support ALL women and their choices)

Using your creativity, we encourage all artists to either create a new piece for the cover page contest or submit an already created piece. Please be sure to include a 500 word (minimum) write up about the connection between your artwork and the theme. Stumped about writing? Just write about how your artwork encompasses the theme and the importance of art to discuss an issue or about the importance of the issue itself. Artists are encouraged to write in their native language. We are here if you have any questions about how to submit or what's needed. Use these guidelines to help you along the way ... read here.

January 2014's theme Family & Community honoring Global Family Day 

February 2014's theme Language & Communication honoring Mother Language Day

March 2014's theme: Water or Monochromatic Blue Art honoring World Water Day 


About The Highlighted events

JANUARY - This is the very idea behind two January 1 events - One Day In Peace and Global Family Day. A global campaign for One Day In Peace on January 1, 2000 helped inspire a UN Resolution and a joint United States Congressional Resolution, inviting January 1 to be celebrated every year as a day of peace and sharing. If we can live for one day in peace, then we can work together to make peace last, one day at a time. The day has also come to be known as Global Family Day - a day for peace and sharing. Communities around the world come together for a shared meal on January 1 and talk about how they can help to create a better world. What can you do to help create humanity's first day of peace, ever?

FEBRUARY - In 1999, UNESCO decided to launch an International Mother Language Day (IMLD) to be observed throughout the world each year on 21 February. This celebration is designed to promote linguistic diversity and multilingual education, to highlight greater awareness of the importance of mother tongue education. Linguistic and cultural diversity represent universal values that strengthen the unity and cohesion of societies. That is why UNESCO’s Director-General, in launching IMLD 2013, will reinforce the importance of this core message and specifically highlight this year’s theme of access to books and digital media in local languages. UNESCO’s Member States worldwide are key actors in the promotion of mother tongues through their national institutions and associations. The media, schools, universities and cultural associations play an active part in promoting the IMLD goals. Using the slogan “Books for Mother tongue education”, IMLD 2013 aims to remind key stakeholders in education that in order to to support mother tongue education, it is essential to support the production of books in local languages.

MARCH - World Water Day is held annually on 22 March as a means of focusing attention on the importance of freshwater and advocating for the sustainable management of freshwater resources. An international day to celebrate freshwater was recommended at the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED). The United Nations General Assembly responded by designating 22 March 1993 as the first World Water Day. Each year, World Water Day highlights a specific aspect of freshwater. In 2013, in reflection of the International Year of Water Cooperation, World Water Day is also dedicated to the theme of cooperation around water and is coordinated by UNESCO in collaboration with UNECE and UNDESA on behalf of UN-Water.
