Mongolian boy O.Dulguun won a gold medal at the 2014 FAI Young Artists Contest themed “Flying to Save Lives.”
Youngsters from China, Japan, Mongolia, Nepal, Russia, Turkey, Ukraine and the USA are among the winners of the 2014 Federation Internationale de l’Automobile (FAI) Young Artists’ Contest. The event awards FAI medals and diplomas to artists in three age categories from six to 17 years old.
O.Dulguun won the contest in the intermediate category (ages 10 to 13), followed by Anastasiya Novikova from Russia and K.C. Bibeen from Nepal.
The competition was fierce, not only because of the quality of the artworks, but also due to the significant rise in participation. The number of FAI member countries taking part in the contest soared from 14 in 2013 to 21 in 2014 with the involvement of Bulgaria, Canada, China, Czech Republic, France, Finland, India, Italy, Japan, Libya, Lithuania, Mongolia, Nepal, Poland, Qatar, Russia, Serbia, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine and USA.
“We are delighted that this year’s theme, ‘Flying to Save Lives,’ was so inspirational. The paintings are of excellent quality and we are honored to award medals and diplomas to such talented youngsters,” FAI Young Artists Contest coordinator Suzie Gebb stated.
“21 FAI members participated in this year’s contest, some of them from Turkey, Switzerland and the USA having received between 5,000 and 10,000 entries. We also noticed with pleasure that many new countries such as Egypt, Libya and Mongolia joined the contest for the first time. We also received entries from Sri Lanka which sadly could not be taken into account as the contest is reserved for FAI members, but hopefully this country will join the FAI and participate next year.”
