Residents of the capital can take part in the drawing contest “Animals of the Red Book of Moscow”, dedicated to the World Animal Protection Day.

Participants need to create a drawing depicting a representative of a species of the animal kingdom listed in the Red Book of Moscow. Scans or photos of finished works must be sent to the ecocenter “Moscow Ecologist” Mosprirody from October 1 to October 15.

Only color drawings on A4/A3 paper made in any technique using colored pencils, paints or wax crayons are allowed to participate in the competition. At the same time, collages, applications and programs for graphic modeling and design cannot be used.

The best works will be selected in three age categories: from seven to 13 years old, from 13 to 17 years old and among participants over 18 years old. Winners and prize-winners will receive memorable gifts.
