The NEAR Secretariat announced the results of the 7th Youth Art · Poster contest on Monday, November 25. The Secretariat has held this contest annually since 2013 targeting youths from five North East Asian countries. The 170 art works were submitted by 17 NEAR regional governments of five countries: China, Japan, South Korea, Mongolia, and Russia. This was the largest number of submissions, and the participants excelled in their skill.



Five external judges were invited by the Secretariat to assess the submissions. As a result, Exploration of Pteridophyte, a watercolor by Kirillova Ekaterina who attends Tomsk Children’s Art School No.2 of Tomsk Region in Russia, was awarded the Grand Award.  Also, a total of 40 prize winners were awarded 4 Excellence Awards, 15 Participation awards, and 21 Special recognitions.



The results were reported in the Korean press, and the works of prize winners will be exhibited at the neighboring cities of Gyeongsangbuk-do Province where the Secretariat is located. The NEAR Secretariat aims to encourage youths from North East Asian countries to understand cultures and traditions of neighboring countries through the paintings.


Each NEAR member is scheduled to distribute prizes and certificates to the participants of the contest.
