I would like to thank all the club's that took part in 2016-2017 Peace Poster Competition:
Ringwood + Fordingbridge
Regrettably two of the Peace Posters that have arrived for this year's competition had to be DISQUALIFIED, one was a half inch
too small and the other was attached to card. Sadly this is a repeat of last year's problems.
PLEASE, PLEASE, check the sizes of your MD Peace Posters, the minimum is:
13 inches (33 cm) by 20 inches (50.8 cm).
Please also check the rules of the competition. It is a shame that again some of the Posters have been disqualified,
THE RULES IN THE PACK NEED TO BE READ before you approach the schools etc.
Please also take the time to read this webpage regarding the rules of the competitions.
This year's Theme for 2017-2018 will be 'The Future of Peace'

The Lions Peace Poster competition theme for 2017-2018 is 'The Future of Peace' Artists must be 11, 12 or 13 years of age on the 15th of November in the year of entry to compete in the International Competition.
This is an opportunity to encourage the young people in your local community to think about the importance of world peace, tolerance and international understanding. It also gives young people an outlet for artistic self expression that can be shared with their local community and possibly the world. Clubs can encourage these young people to share their unique visions with the world, through pictures. Expression of theme, along with artistic merit and originality, are the three criteria that posters are evaluated on at all judging levels. On the District level, one poster is chosen to advance to the multiple district, then the multiple district chooses one poster to send to International Headquarters for the International competition. There are two levels of International competition: semifinal and final. 24 posters are selected for the final. The grand prize winner receives US$2.500.
All posters must be no smaller than 330mm by 508mm and must be no larger than 508mm by 600mm. No collages are allowed, along with no numbering or wording to be on the poster in any language, nothing may be attached to the poster in any way, posters cannot be mounted on another surface or laminated. As a guide the preferred size is ISO standard A2 drawing paper which is readily available. The Label, which contained in the Kit, MUST be attached to the back right hand bottom corner of the poster. No photocopies are allowed.
Entries failing to meet specific contest rules and deadlines will be disqualified. The closing date for the Peace Poster is the 15th November, the posters MUST be postmarked AT THE LATEST by the 15th November. Any posters with later postmarks will be disqualified. If there is a problem PLEASE PLEASE notify the current officer or the Youth Chairman for advice.

Peace Poster - 105D Junior District Competition
As well as the International Competition we run our own Junior Peace Poster District Competition for 7 & 8 year old(Years 3/4) and 9 & 10 year old(Years 5/6). The rules for the younger age groups are similar to the International/MD Competition and these are outlined below. Please read them carefully.
The Junior Peace Poster Competition does not need a Peace Poster Pack from Oakbrook. This competition is for our District only.
Entrants have to be either in years 3/4 or years 5/6 on 15th November 2018 to enter the Junior District Competition.
Please note that we will be using ONLY the year group on these posters.
The paper size for the Junior Competition is smaller than the International/MD Competition to allow for the younger ages. The paper used can either be A4 minimum or A3 maximum.
Any medium can be used but the poster must have no words or any collage on it.
There is also a Junior competition for a Computer Aided Design picture with the rules being exactly the same.
The Lions club that sponsors the International Contest District winner will receive the Godwin Micallef Peace Poster Trophy to be held for one year.
