ViaRT Award is thrilled to present its fifth edition! This year, we are excited to introduce a new challenge under the title "1.5 Degrees Celsius: Create against Climate Change." ViaRT invites primary and secondary students across Singapore to join our annual art competition in response to global warming and the urgent need to act, as well as in support of the Recycle Right campaign by the National Environment Agency (NEA) to encourage the 3Rs (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) culture. 

This year’s competition aims to ignite a creative response to the global warming crisis, emphasizing the critical 1.5 degrees Celsius limit set by the Paris Agreement. Students are encouraged to use upcycled materials to produce artworks or design items that not only showcase artistic skill but also function as potent messages for climate action.

Participants can create innovative solutions such as energy-saving devices, sustainable fashion, or artworks that vividly depict the impacts of exceeding the 1.5°C threshold or any other climate change related topic.  The goal is to raise awareness and inspire action among peers and communities towards maintaining this critical limit for global temperature rise.

The submission period will begin on September 9th and conclude on November 15th, 2024. Entries will be evaluated based on their creativity, impact, and ability to convey a compelling message about limiting global warming.

The competition will include three categories: PARKROYAL COLLECTION Marina Bay Singapore Best Sustainable Message Award (for the artwork that best communicates the urgency of adhering to the 1.5 degrees Celsius limit), The Most Creative Award (for the most creative piece of artwork), and The Most Artistic Award (for the most aesthetically pleasing artwork).

Winners will receive attractive prizes, including cash rewards and exclusive eco-friendly experiences, thanks to our sponsors. Furthermore, selected artworks may have the honor of being exhibited at the Sustainable Singapore Gallery in 2025.

Join us at ViaRT in harnessing the power of creativity to make a difference in the fight against global warming. Together, let's inspire change and take action to protect our planet for future generations.
