‘Restoring the Passion’ is theme for youth day art event

Photography, drawings and videos contest open to anyone at least 5 years of age


The Fédération Internationale des Véhicules Anciens is accepting entries for its annual youth day art competition under the theme of “Restoring the Passion.”

Youths and “the young-at-heart” are invited to submit photographs, sketches, paintings, illustrations and videos that reflect the 2021 contest theme. 

“After the success of last year’s competition, we are again celebrating the United Nations International Youth Day on 12 August with a creative competition,” said Nataša Jerina, FIVA vice president.

“Aimed primarily at the under-18s, we nevertheless believe that youth is a state of mind, not a number, so we’ve again included a category for more mature enthusiasts.

“If there’s one positive message that we at FIVA can take away from the pandemic, it’s the precious gift of quality time. Time spent getting back to the garage, getting our hands dirty, sharing laughter and making memories. This year, restoration has taken many forms: not only the time spent restoring our historic vehicles but also the bonds we’ve rebuilt with the people we love. 

“So… we invite you to share a photograph, a sketch/painting/illustration or a video of how you ‘Restored the Passion’ this year with your historic vehicle, interpreting the theme as creatively as you can.”

Entries in three categories — photograph, sketch/painting/illustration, and video — will be judged in three age groups — 5-11, 12-17 and 18-and-older. Winners will be announced in September.
