International Drawing Competition 2009

23 June 2009

Drawing as a vector for reflection on gender equality

On the occasion of International Women’s Day and the 50th anniversary of the European Community in 2007, EuropAid launched a drawing competition inviting children around the world to express their views concerning gender equality through their creativity and enthusiasm. Thus raising awareness on gender equality issues in developing countries. The second edition in 2008 established that the jury members would be children of the same age as the participants from the 27 EU Member States. The third edition of the competition was launched in 2009 under the patronage of Princess Mathilde of Belgium.


This project was carried out by Cecoforma Events & Communication in two phases: a communication campaign around the drawing competition in the EC Delegations, followed by the prize-giving ceremony in Brussels. The selection of the 14 winning drawings took place on 23 June in the presence of Her Royal Highness Princess Mathilde of Belgium and Mr Koos Richelle, Director General for EuropeAid Cooperation Office. The jury was made up of 49 primary school pupils of the European School in Brussels as this school gathers every European nationality. A notebook was edited with the winning drawings. Cecoforma Events & Communication also organised an exhibition in Rabat (MA) and two children were invited to attend this event.
