"Igračka u srcu" ("Toys at Heart" International Art and Writing Contest 2018      Organized by Croatian Heritage Foundation (Zagreb, Croatia), Croatian School of Boston (USA) and Croatian Studies Foundation (Sydney, Australia)     

 

Hrvatska matica iseljenika (Zagreb Hrvatska), u suradnji s Hrvatskom školom Boston (SAD) i Zakladom za hrvatske studije (Sydney, Australija), organizira međunarodni likovno-literarni natječaj “Igračka u srcu” inspiriran hrvatskom tradicijskom kulturom.

 

Natjecati se mogu djeca i mladi od 5 do 18 godina individualnim ili grupnim radovima. Pozivamo obitelji, škole, crkve, centre, folklorne i sportske klubove, kao i ostale hrvatske organizacije da nam se pridruže u poticanju kreativnosti i promicanju ovog važnog aspekta hrvatske tradicijske kulture.

 

Ocjenjivački odbor činit će neovisni stručnjaci iz Hrvatske i svijeta: umjetnici, nastavnici i drugi stručnjaci koji neće ni na koji drugi način biti povezani s natječajem. Imena članova ocjenjivačkog odbora objavit će se prije roka za predaju radova.

 

Hrvatska škola Boston koordinator je natječaja za sjevenoamerički i južnoamerički kontinent. Nadamo se da ćemo primiti veliki broj radova iz ovog dijela svijeta. Pobjednički radovi bit će izloženi na multimedijalnoj izložbi u prostorima Hrvatske matice iseljenika koja će se održati početkom prosinca 2018.

 

Ovaj natječaj izuzetna je prilika odraslima da podijele stare hrvatske tradicije s mlađima  da se prisjete svog djetinjstva, a mladima da se osvrnu na svoje porijeklo. Divna je to prilika za Hrvate i osobe hrvatskog porijekla da se uključe i povežu s globalnom hrvatskom zajednicom.

 

 

Croatian Heritage Foundation (Zagreb, Croatia), in cooperation with Croatian School of Boston (USA) and Croatian Studies Foundation (Sydney, Australia), is organizing “Igračka u srcu” (“Toys at Heart”) International Art and Writing Competition inspired by Croatian traditional culture.

 

Individual and group entries from children and youth from 5 to 18 years of age will be accepted. We invite families, schools, churches, centers, folk and sports clubs, and other Croatian organizations to join us in encouraging creativity and sharing this important aspect of the Croatian traditional culture.

 

The judging committee will be composed of independent, international, and professional members, including artists, teachers, and other professionals who are not otherwise involved in the competition in any way. Their names will be announced before entry submission deadline.

 

Croatian School of Boston is coordinating the competition on the North American and South American continents. We hope to receive a large number of entries from this part of the world. Winning entries will be displayed at the multimedia exhibition scheduled to open in Zagreb at Croatian Heritage Foundation headquarters at the beginning of December of 2018.

 

This competition is a great opportunity for adults to share old Croatian traditions with young generations and bring back their childhood memories, and for young people to reflect on their heritage. It is a wonderful opportunity for Croats and people of Croatian heritage to engage and connect with the global Croatian community.

 

WELCOME!
