Invitation for The 8th Biennial International Children’s and Young Adults’ Art Competition Tehran – 2016

Upated on :June 22, 2016


Water is an irreplaceable blessing and a resplendency of beauty and refreshment. Its deficiency will dramatically lead to the silence of roaring rivers and sweet songs of birds and the extinct of playful fish, blossoms on trees, and colorful flowers’ smiles in nature.

Today, one of the most serious challenges facing the world is water. A number of factors, such as climate change, population growth, unsystematic exploitation of water resources, have drastically diminished water sources.

Accordingly, Kanoon is going to hold a painting competition for children and young adults on the theme of “water” to make them aware of water issues, such as the ways to save water and the outcomes of water crisis in the world.
