On April 2013, IME, the Institute for Mexicans Abroad, celebrated its 10th anniversary. For this reason, during the whole year there will be all kinds of important events.
Regarding our prestigious Children´s Drawing Contest, this year and for the first time, a world famous Mexican artist will support the contest as its mentor. Jorge Marín, a great Mexican painter and sculptor whose work is recognized around the world, has graciously accepted to stand behind this year´s edition of the contest.
If you are between 7 and 11 years old, you can be part of this 17th “Este es mi México” Children’s Drawing Contest. Through art in form of a drawing, children from all around the world, express what Mexico means to them. In this year’s edition, we ask you to show us how you relate with Mexico and its history, its culture, its art, its natural richness, its people, its food, its festivities or any other subject related to this wonderful country named Mexico.
What do you remember about México? What have your parents or grandparents told you about our beloved and beautiful country? How do you perceive the colors, the taste, the smell of México? What do they think about Mexico in the country where you live? Please tell us all about it in your drawing! Dare to put wings to your imagination and share your fantasy with the world!
