This quarantine period, CCEF is launching its awareness raising campaign: “MPAs sa Mata sa mga Bata”. This campaign aims to create positive change among local communities through art and raises the profile of drawing local marine ecosystems as a tool for thought, creativity, social and cultural engagement. The Campaign’s purpose is to create a new regard for the power of drawing to help people see, think, raise awareness, and take action in their own local MPAs.
The drawing campaign will be separated in two age groups having two different themes: What’s in your MPA? (Ages 8-12 years old) and What makes your MPA special? (Ages 13-18 years old). Submissions to the CCEF drawing campaign must be in A4 size, with a short essay (maximum 200 words) and a photo of the participant with their drawing. The participant is free to use any illustration materials for their drawing. Each participant can only submit one drawing for the campaign.
Submissions for the drawing campaign must be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org before July 31, 2020.
