Each winner to receive RM 10,000 cash prize, artwork to be used for special stamps and first day cover

KUALA LUMPUR, 10 June 2013 – With 10 days to the 20 June deadline, Kakikreatif, Pos Malaysia and UNICEF are making a final call for entries to the Colours of My World art contest for children living with disabilities in Malaysia.

Winners of the three disability categories will each receive RM 10,000 from Pos Malaysia and their artworks will be used to create the special set of Caring Society stamps and first day cover to celebrate Universal Children's Day 2013.

Children between the ages of 13 and 17 years old who have been diagnosed with a physical, sensory or developmental disability are invited to submit their original artwork to illustrate their life, as well as their dreams and hopes for themselves and for Malaysia. There is no fee to participate in the contest. The criteria for submissions are:

§ Artwork must be related to the theme "Colours of My World"

§ Children can use acrylics, chalk, crayon, oils, water colour or mixed media on A3 drawing block paper to create their masterpieces.

§ Entries must be the original artwork of the child and should not have been published in any form previously.

§ The work must not be framed.

§ Each child may only submit a maximum of two (2) entries.

Entries should be submitted by hand, Pos Laju or courier to: Kakikreatif, L1-35 & 36, Level 1; SSTwo Mall, No 40 Jalan SS2/72; 47300 Petaling Jaya, Selangor.

Malaysian actress, producer and director, Ida Nerina will join the panel of judges from Kakikreatif, Pos Malaysia and UNICEF to review the artwork in July. Entries will be evaluated based on creativity and the idea and inspiration behind the artwork. The three winners will be announced at the launch of the special stamps and first day cover in October 2013.
