Peace Poster

Peace Poster Competition and Winners

Lions Peace Poster is a global schools competition held annually that invites young people (aged 11-13) to  creatively express their hopes and aspirations for the world. The complementary Lions Essay competition has been designed for visually impaired young people of the same age to express their feelings regarding peace.

Lions Clubs around the world proudly sponsor the Lions International Peace Poster Competition in local schools and youth groups.  For more than 25 years, millions of children from nearly 100 countries have participated.

Promoting the Arts

Each year’s competition consists of an original theme incorporating peace. Participants use a variety of mediums, including charcoal, crayon, pencil and paint, to express the theme. The works created are unique and express the young artists’ life experiences and culture, in the hope of spreading peace and international understanding.

Twenty-four international finalists are selected each year, representing the work of more than 350,000 young participants worldwide. Posters are shared globally via the Internet, the media and exhibits around the world.

Judging the Peace Poster

Each poster is judged on originality, artistic merit and interpretation of the theme.

This is an opportunity to encourage young people to think about the importance of world peace, so that we may all have greater tolerance and international understanding, and to pass it on. These young people share their unique visions with the world, through pictures.

THE THEME OF THE 2016-17 PEACE POSTER COMPETITION  IS “A CELEBRATION OF PEACE”. Students, ages 11, 12 or 13 on November 15, are eligible to participate.

This year we had 55 entries in partnership with BWI year 6, with the support of Head Teacher Gill Westbrook and her wonderful team. The judging/exhibition  was held at Ruislip Manor Library on Saturday 12th November.

The  winner was Poppy whose entry will go forward to the Lions District Finals, and the runner up was Emily. For the under- age group the winner was Thomas  and the runner-up was Lily. The judge also commended Kayla’s poster.

Below are photos of the winning, runner-up and commended posters.

THE THEME OF THE 2015-16 PEACE POSTER COMPETITION IS “SHARE PEACE”. Students, ages 11, 12 or 13 on November 15, are eligible to participate.

We had 118 entries this year. Many of the children (plus their siblings) attended the exhibition and enjoyed seeing their own exhibits and those of their friends.

Many parents supported their children, despite the dismal weather, and gave positive feedback about the added value of our local Lions competition. Our thanks to those parents who attended.

Thanks also to Cllr. Catherine Dann for attending in her blue ex-mayoral robes. The children really enjoyed chatting to her and having their photographs taken with her.

Last year’s winner, Helen Stephen, supported her younger brother and kindly agreed to present Cllr. Dann with a token of our thanks.

Additionally, the Mayor apologised for cancelling this year and as an alternative invited the winners and their parents to visit the Mayor’s Parlour at the civic centre and have their photograph taken with the Mayor on 24 November. Below are some of the photographs.
