After one month launching, the art creative contest “Why-life needs wildlife?” has found the best 7 entries and 1 entry got the most votes.

The art creative contest “Why-life needs wildlife?” was organised from June 5, 2022 to July 5, 2022 with the aim of conveying the theme “Protecting wildlife is also protecting our own life” to everyone through an art creative contest about wild animals.

Our panel of judges, which included Nguyen Van Thai, SVW’s Executive Director; Do Viet Anh, CEO BOO; Director Cao Trung Hieu, and Artist Dinh Kieu Duong, chose seven winning entries from among 30 eligible entries based on the entry’s expression (layout, colour, technique) and how well it conveyed the contest’s theme on a scale of 100 points. In addition, the eligible entry that got the most eligible votes on Save Vietnam’s Wildlife Fanpage during the voting week will be deemed the winner of the Voting Prize.
