Frequently Asked Questions
What is the “World Environment Day” Drawing Contest?
WED Contest is a yearly contest open to children and teens. Learners are invited to create their art pieces for the chance to have it featured on contest.diproinduca.com and win some great Prizes for their continuous learning journey.
Why is Diproinduca doing this Contest?
We proudly believe it’s our responsibility to provide the next generations with the opportunities to stand on our shoulders and become better than us in their journey through the planet. Our drawing Contest is an opportunity for the youngest generations to display their own Artwork on contest.diproinduca.com.
How long has Diproinduca been doing this Contest?
We’ve been hosting the World Environment day Drawing Contest every year globally since 2010, so this is our tenth year.
Who is allowed to participate in the contest?
Anyone up to 18 years old. For participants under 13, the entry form must be submitted by a parent or guardian. Parents or Guardians can register multiple participants at one time, but only one original Artwork per registrant.
What happens if two artworks are entered from the same Participant?
We can only accept one Artwork per Participant. If we receive two drawings from the same Participant, we will take the last entry received.
Do you accept group entries?
We do not accept Artwork created by more than one Participant. Each piece should be created by only one student.
What materials can be used on the art piece?
The artist may perform a piece by using any medium or materials. Nonetheless, please note that the Artwork will be reviewed and scanned in a two-dimensional (2D) format. If participants create a three-dimensional (3D) piece, please take a photograph and enter the picture rather than the original. Original 2D scannable Artwork made with materials such as paint, crayons, pencils, pastels, markers, chalk, charcoal, or a 2D photomontage will be allowed. Computer-generated images will also be admitted. Read more information, see the About the contest page.

Can I crop and rotate the picture of my drawing once it is loaded in my profile?
Yes. It is very important that you know that what you upload to the page and approve in your profile, will be what the judges will see; therefore, try as much as possible to take a good picture of your drawing, with high quality and good light. When you load it make sure to crop it so that only the drawing can be seen without having extra spaces around it. You can rotate and crop your image once you upload it to your profile, and you can approve how your profile will look before sending it definitively.
Any recommendations regarding the title of the drawing?
Spend a little time thinking about what your artwork will be called, be creative
Do I have to write in both languages?
No. You can choose to upload your profile in English or Spanish; we will handle the translations according to each case.
Why English and Spanish?
Because these are our roots. We come from a medley of Latin American and English-speaking countries and we are proud to offer this event not only in the countries where we operate but also in countries of the continent where English or Spanish is spoken.
We have a team that is capable of communicating in both languages, in any of our media and social networks we can respond ably to your comments in either English or Spanish.
Do you translate everything?
We dedicate a large part of our efforts to bring you a completely bilingual event, which means that we must translate not only the material we produce but also the comments of judges and participants. We assure you that we will try as much as possible to meet the expectations of everyone who interacts with this event.
When does the contest close?
The deadline to upload your drawing is August 1 at 8:00 EST. Without exception, drawings will not be accepted after this time.
What if a power shutdown occurs or the internet connection fails?
We recommend that you be prepared to overcome these problems if these events are possible or can be foreseen. Without exception, drawings will not be accepted after the date and time stipulated on the contest website.
Can I submit an artwork that I made for another event?
No. The drawing with which you participate for this drawing contest cannot be one that you have submitted for another project or has participated in another contest.
During the drawing activity, children should not receive help from parents, guardians, or third parties, except in the case of participants in the Seeds category, who need to be assisted to perform their drawing as independently as possible. The best way to help is by talking with them about the topic, encouraging them to read the blog of material in order to enhance their creativity.
