Rustenburg – Due to COVID-19, Rustenburg Lions Club decided to host this year’s local leg of the International Peace Poster Contest (IPPC) on Facebook. This means that they will not physically visit local schools to promote the contest.

As an alternative, they arranged that entries to the IPPC can be registered at Inkpot Stationers here in Rustenburg. Inkpot kindly agreed to provide entrants with the paper on which the artwork can be done. Entrants can also opt to use their paper, but the entry form, which is in the form of a stamp that Inkpot will apply, must be completed on the backside of the artwork. The completed artwork can then be handed in at Inkpot before the end of September to be judged. The winners will be notified telephonically and will then also be announced on Facebook.

This year there will be three categories to compete in.

The original IPPC is open to any learner aged 11 to 13. The top five entries in this category will advance to the next level of the contest. Two of the top five will be selected by judges appointed by Rustenburg Lions Club, the others will be voted for by visitors to our Facebook page. All the entries will be posted on the club’s Facebook page in the first week of October, and the ones that receive the most ‘likes’ and ‘shares’ will be selected as the winners.

There will be one winner in the other two categories, which will be an open category where anyone can take part in and the category for special needs children. The entries in these two categories will have to do their artwork on an A5 paper, which can if required to be supplied free of charge by Inkpot Stationers.

For more information and to find the rules, please visit the Rustenburg Lions Club’s Facebook page or send a message to Juan Mitchell via WhatsApp on 084 740 6084 to be added to the Rustenburg Lions Peace Poster group.

Remember, entry is free and there are cash prizes and other goodies up for grabs. Get creative and enter today!
