It's almost time!
The What About Peace? contest is in its final stages as the judges read through hundreds of written pieces and inspect all the artwork. Winners will be announced on our website on April 23rd.
Our jury consists of a book store owner, a graphic artist, a journalist, an author, an artist, educator, and curator all dedicated to giving their full attention to all the work presented to the What About Peace? contest by young people from around the world.
Every written piece is read by four people; evaluating them for craft and content. All of the visual pieces have been hung in the conference room of the Global Exchange office for the jury to see and ask themselves the questions: What are the most compelling messages of peace? What are the most original?
One judge in particular, artist Richard Kamler, took his time analyzing all the works of art from his perspective of art being a catalyst for social change and cultural transformation.
Stay tuned on April 23rd for the announcement of all the winners of 2014's What About Peace? contest.
