As part of the United Nations International Youth Day, scheduled for August 12, the Fédération Internationale des Véhicules Anciens is staging a contest under the theme “Historic Vehicles and Industrial Heritage.”
The competition is open to young people to submit photographs, paintings or drawings that fit the theme.
“Our competition invites the young and young-at-heart to submit bold and innovative artistic representations of historic vehicles in the context of industrial heritage, expressing the importance of maintaining classics on tomorrow’s roads,” said FIVA vice president Nataša Jerina.
“While the UN defines the world’s youth as the 15-24 age group, we think it fair to extend this to include the young-at-heart. Youth is a state of mind, not a number, so we don’t have a cut-off age but we nevertheless hope to see many entries from people in their teens – or younger.”
The contest includes three categories:
- Category 1: Photography of industrial buildings, fuel stations, garages, etc., in some way connected to historic vehicles
- Category 2: Paintings/drawings of industrial buildings, fuel stations, garages, etc., in some way connected to historic vehicles
- Category 3: Photography showing an owner with his/her historic vehicle
Entries will be published on FIVA social media sites using the hashtags #fiva_classic #historic_vehicles #culture #youth #internationalyouthday #2020youth
The winners of each category will be announced by the end of September and will receive recognition “through publication on FIVA’s website and social media, presentation of the project to the FIVA General Assembly, provisionally held in November, plus they will receive a FIVA book, FIVA vehicle plaque and a recognition diploma.”
Entries should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com to arrive no later than August 30, FIVA said.
