2020 Youth Art Contest!


Nature's way of helping humans



The third annual Antinanco Youth Art Contest has drawn to a close. After some prolonged deliberation, the Antinanco Arts and Creativity Committee sifted through the many remarkable entries, taking into account all public votes and comments, and identified the winning entries. We had a hard time picking the winners with so many incredible entries from talented artists in each age category, and made a decision to add three additional Special Recognition prizes as well as the Honorary Ruhe Award.


We thank all participants for their participation, we were absolutely blown away by your talent. All participants will be invited to the Antinanco Art Exhibition (date to be announced), and we look forward to seeing what incredible creations you submit next time! 

Here are the winning artworks:
