Lions international Peace poster competition 2018

The theme of the 2018 Peace Poster Contest is “KINDNESS MATTERS”. This is an opportunity to encourage the young people in our local community to think about the importance of world peace, tolerance and international understanding. It also gives young people an outlet for artistic self expression that can be shared with their local community and possibly the world.



(Local judging deadline 1 November 2018)


Students, ages 11, 12 or 13 as of November 15, are eligible to participate.


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.


Expression of theme, along with artistic merit and originality, are the three criteria that posters are evaluated on at all judging levels.


1 November 2018 – Local Judging will select one poster to go forward to District (SW England)

15 November – District judging will select one poster to forward to Multiple District (United Kingdom)

End November – Multiple District judging will select one poster to go forward to Lions International Headquarters in the United States for the International competition

There are two levels of International competition: semifinal and final. 24 posters are selected for the final. The grand prize winner receives US$2,500.



All posters must be no smaller than 330mm by 508mm and must be no larger than 508mm by 600mm. No collages are allowed, along with no numbering or wording to be on the poster in any language, nothing may be attached to the poster in any way, posters cannot be mounted on another surface or laminated. As a guide the preferred size is ISO standard A2 drawing paper which is readily available. No photocopies are allowed.


Entries failing to meet specific contest rules and deadlines will be disqualified.



(Local judging deadline 1 November 2018)


As well as the International Competition there is a Junior Peace Poster District Competition for 7 & 8 year old (School Years 3 and 4) and 9 & 10 year old (School Years 5 and 6). This is judged at a local and district level only.


Entrants have to be either in school years 3/4 or years 5/6 on 15th November 2018 to enter the Junior District Competition. Please note that we will be using ONLY the year group on these posters.


The rules for the younger age groups are similar to the International/MD Competition as above, except that the paper size for the Junior Competition is smaller than the International/MD Competition to allow for the younger ages. The paper used can either be A4 minimum or A3 maximum. Any medium can be used but the poster must have no words nor any collage on it.


Local entries for either competition must be submitted to Lion Paul Pearce; 2 La Playa; St Clement; JE26SB to arrive before 1 November 2018
