Green Week 2006 School Competition: nominees announced

The finalists for the Green Week 2006 School Competition have been selected out of 7000 entries representing schools from almost all European countries in both categories: artwork and videos. The prizes will be announced at the Environment Award Ceremony on 1 June during the Green Week Conference which will take place in Brussels, from 30 May to 2 June 2006.

The theme of this year’s school competition was biodiversity. The artwork category (drawings, paintings and collages) was open to younger pupils (5 to 10 years old) while the video category was for pupils aged 11 to 16. The participants were invited to illustrate examples of both the benefits and the threats of biodiversity in their local environment through artwork or video.

Judging the competition entries

The evaluation of the entries was made in two stages. The first stage aimed to create a shortlist of the best 100 artwork entries and 30 video entries. The selection was made by a group of European teachers who evaluated and selected the best entries using Web tools. In the second stage, a jury composed of teachers and experts in art and environment selected the best three artwork and video entries. The jury used common evaluation criteria, namely theme relevance (biodiversity), originality, aesthetics and use of media.

The wide variety of visual and artistic techniques that the nominees used to illustrate how sustainable or unsustainable ecological practices affect our lives directly or indirectly was highly appreciated by the jury. The various creative solutions envisaged by the nominees to overcome unsustainable ecological practices in the near future were also taken into account.
