The images submitted are understood to be the property of the artist. The competition will be based on: Visual appeal, overall impact, adherence to competition rules and use of medium.

All entries meeting the minimum criteria as outlined above will receive a prize. The top three entries will be awarded with a plaque and a special prize.

The UN will keep all works of art and display them in different offices throughout the country. Participants will deliver their entries with their name and chosen theme to the address below and the deadline for submissions is October 15, 2010.
