There are some significant changes to the rules and entry process this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. This year, we have opened the competition to all children worldwide, encouraging everyone to get creative during this time while you may be stuck indoors and self-isolating.

Selected winners will be published in the 2021 calendar to be distributed internationally to raise awareness of mangrove forest ecology. This colorful calendar has increased in popularity since its first publication in 2002. The 2021 calendar is our 20th edition. We would like to invite children from your country to join in this fantastic creative and educational competition. It is an opportunity for the younger generation to learn about the vital role Mangroves play in the lives of coastal communities and marine life around the world whilst letting them explore their imagination and have fun when creating their pieces of art.

This year we reached nearly 2500 students, aged between 6 and 16, in 30 schools across 12 countries. The artworks entered were incredibly stunning and expressive and have resulted in one of our most beautiful calendars to date. This year we’ve gone that little bit further with the calendar. Using soy-based inks, the calendars were printed on FSC-certified 100% recycled paper to produce an earth-friendly product.

Many thanks to all those who took part in this year’s activities! Join us in our mission to educate, enlighten and empower the youth of today across the globe so that mangroves, and our planet, have a sustainable future!
