Our Painting & Photography Competition!

City Weekend Parents & Kids art competition is BACK!

This year, it's a Painting & Photography Competition, to let everyone get involved and show off their artistic side.

The topic this year is: MY CITY.

Within the Expat community there are so many different nationalities and experiences of Shanghai living.

Some of us are born here, some end up living here for decades and some have a shorter stay. However you expereince it, Shanghai has a lasting impact on all of us.

Artwork entries should showcase what makes this city unique to you.

- What is it that you love the most?

- When you're away, what do you miss and can't wait to return to?

- What connects you to this megatropolis and makes it "your own"?

- What hopes and dreams do you have for Shanghai's future?

Contestants are encouraged to present their ideas of "My City" in their artwork entry.

There will be a fun and creative Awards Ceremony later, where winners and selected nominees will receive official plaques and a presentation.
