Last year we launched an art competition as a fundraiser for IHSAN. The competition was open to anyone, and entrants could submit as many entries as they wanted to. The theme for the competition was Love, Strength, Unity, Courage, Faith, and Hope. Entrants were required to produce any medium of art (e.g. paint, crayon, pencil, collage, decoupage, etc.), that communicated the essence of the any/or all the theme words. Entries were categorized into the following age groups:

  • 3-5
  • 6-9
  • 10-13
  • 14-17
  • 18+

The winning art from each category will be framed and placed in the new IHSAN school and the winning artist would be nominated ambassadors of IHSAN. Needless to say, we were overwhelmed by the amazing entries we received! Art work was sent in from schools, individuals, families; artists as young as 2 years old took the time share their creativity with us. We are so humbled by the support and the beautiful treasures of art that we received, which certainly made the judging process very challenging to say the least! We will soon share with you the judging process and of course present the winners in each category, but here we just want to take the opportunity to say a big thank you to everyone who participated, and share some of your amazing works with everyone.
