Lions Clubs International Peace Poster Contest

For the past 30 years Lions clubs around the world have proudly sponsored the Lions International Peace Poster Contest in local schools and youth groups. This art contest for kids encourages young people worldwide to express their visions of peace.

To celebrate our 30th anniversary, we have an updated look and encourage every Lions club to engage with the youth in their community to sponsor a Peace Poster Contest entry.

The theme of the 2017-2018 Peace Poster Contest is "The Future of Peace." Students, ages 11, 12 or 13 as of November 15, are eligible to participate.

Peace Poster Contest Judging
Each poster is judged on originality, artistic merit and expression of the theme.

Posters advance through several judging levels: local, district, multiple district and international. At the international level, judges from the art, peace, youth, education and media communities select one grand prize winner and 23 merit award winners.

Peace Poster Contest Awards
International winners will be notified on or before February 1.

One international grand prize winner will receive US$5,000 and a trip to a special award ceremony.
Each of the 23 merit award winners will receive a cash award of US$500 and a certificate of achievement.

The Multiple District Peace Poster Judging took place at the 2nd Council Meeting held in Durban on 19th November 2016 – Hosted by District C (District Governor Kim Van Wyk). Lions Peggy Du Plooy (410B) and Helen Toward (410C) stood in for Multiple District Chairman Yolande De Jager (Peace Poster Coordinator). Thank you for hosting this special event and for setting up the whole process and for the sourcing of the 3 experienced judges. The artwork from all the districts was very impressive. The judges had a difficult time in making a decision due to the high level and quality of the artwork but, as we know, that there can only be one winner IN any competition. District 410-A’s winning poster will represent our Multiple District 410 at Lions Clubs International Grande Finale Peace Poster Contest.
