Lions International Peace Poster Contest & Exhibition 2013 “Our World, Our Future”

Published: 25th October 2013

The Arts Office, Laois County Council will host a reception and prize giving ceremony for the Lions International Peace Poster Competition in Áras an Chontae, Portlaoise, on Tuesday 12th November at 4.30pm.

The Lions International Peace Poster Contest is an international contest that encourages children, ages 11 - 13, to creatively express what peace means to them. The 2013 contest theme is “ Our World, Our Future”, which should evoke some interesting and imaginative work from the students taking part. Students from schools around the county are invited to take part and their work is adjudicated by an independent professional artist. The annual poster competition allows young people to share their unique image of peace with others, so that we all have greater tolerance and international understanding.

The competition winners will be announced and prizes will be presented by Portlaoise Lions President Philip Bennett. The overall winner will also be announced and will go forward to the next stage of the international competition. The posters will be on display to the public in Áras an Chontae for two weeks.
