Every year, on March 22, the world celebrates the World Water Day. This holiday was established by the United Nations to draw attention of each of us to the quality and importance of this natural resource, as only 1% of all of the water reserves on the surface of our planet are suitable and safe for drinking.

This year, in honor of the Water Day, VENDEN, as a manufacturer of spring and natural mineral water, organized a drawing competition on the topic “Water in our world” for the growing new generation of people on Earth - pre-school pupils. We wanted children to be able to thinkof the importance of water in their daily lives and in nature in generaland to reflect it in theirs works. The competition closed on March 20.

We thank all educational institutions for participation and give special thanks to teachers and staff of kindergartens for their creative approach and activity!

Public vote

Congratulations to the three winners of the public vote who collected the maximum number of votes in a tense battle. All winners will receive prizes for the authors, their groups and their educational institutions.

Moreover, VENDEN awarded promotional prizes to the remaining 17 authors, whose works were ranked 4th to 20th places in the public vote.

Additional prizes

Following the results of the competition, the organizers decided to announce the awarding of 6 additional prizes and 45 promotional prizes. More information about them can be found below.

New year - new rules!

This year, the drawing competition “Water in our World” was held for the first time. Thanks to your activity and support, we decided to make it an annual event. We have learned a lot and taken into account during all the days of the competition, so we can say with confidence that starting with the next competition, the rules for its organization and voting will be significantly supplemented and changed.

5 artistic awards and 45 promotional awards

From a simple vote on the creative abilities of our talented children, the competition quickly turned into an indicator of the cooperation of the various teams and their desire to win. Therefore, VENDEN decided to put more emphasis on the original idea of the competition, increase the prize fund and announce 5 additional artistic prizes for young talents for the most interesting and artistic works. All 5 prizes include not only individual prizes for authors of works and groups of children, but also the purchase of sports equipment or teaching materials for their pre-school institutions.

Special award from VENDEN

The organizers of the competition decided to award one from among all works with a special VENDEN sympathy award. We did not assess the artistic style from a professional point of view, or the popularity of the drawing during the voting, or its originality - only the emotional reaction that this work raised in us. The prize is awarded to the author of the drawing and to the pre-school institution which the author attends.

Let’s look forward to 2023 with art in our hearts!
