An International Comic Competition took place in Dallian, China in July. The theme was environmental protection. The pupils of Primary School Krosnianska 2 from Košice also participated thanks to the initiative of teacher Ľudmila Bujdošová and Lju Dong, a teacher of Chinese language who teaches at the school.
Their attempt met with success. Jakub Vuľcha from ninth grade won first prize. His work, entitled Environmental Fish, also received a financial reward.
“I was inspired by life on an extraterrestrial planet,” Jakub described his winning piece, as quoted by the Košice Korzár.
As he explains, the planet is covered with water. The undersea world is a part of our environment as well.
“Organisms in the water must migrate and adapt to a new environment so I drew the fish migrating and adapting to a new environment to survive,” he explains, as quoted by the Košice Korzár.
The competition was huge
More than 450,000 children and 27 institutions from 36 countries participated in the competition.
The works were evaluated by an international committee that consisted of five world-renowned Chinese and Japanese artists.
Besides Jakub, his classmates Michaela and Daniela Krokusová from sixth grade participated in the competition, receiving a certificate of merit.
