With an increased focus on crime due to the spate of recent criminal activity occurring in some parts of the country, one government organisation is seeking to bring greater awareness of crime to young people with its annual art competition.
Now in its fifth year, the National Task Force on Crime Prevention (NTFCP) will launch its annual art competition under the theme: Preventing Crime in our Schools/Communities on Monday, September 5.?? It will target primary and secondary students, ages six to 17.
Persons interested in participating must note the following criteria:?? entries must be original and not previously used in any other competition; submitted art work should not exceed three feet in height by three feet in width; all paintings must be thoroughly dry as wet paintings will not be accepted; all art work must be clearly labeled with the label stating the name of the artist, age, school and contact number(s) for parent(s)/guardian(s).
The NTFCP will select a panel of judges to adjudicate the competition and persons are asked to note that the judges’ decision is final.
In addition, the unit reserves the right to reject any piece of art that it does not consider to be within the bounds of good taste.
The competition will run until Friday, November 4, and all entries must be submitted to:?? The Director, National Task Force on Crime Prevention, #5 Alphonzo House, 1st Avenue, Belleville, St. Michael.
