FIVA launches creative competition to celebrate International Youth Day

FIVA (the Fédération Internationale des Véhicules Anciens or international federation of historic vehicles) is inviting youngsters to submit photographs, paintings and drawings on the theme of 'Historic Vehicles and Industrial Heritage'.

The competition is being held to celebrate the United Nations International Youth Day, 12 August 2020, promoting the benefits that young people bring into the world.

“Our competition invites the young and young-at-heart to submit bold and innovative artistic representations of historic vehicles in the context of industrial heritage, expressing the importance of maintaining classics on tomorrow’s roads,” says Nataša G. Jerina, vice-president of FIVA. “While the UN defines the world’s youth as the 15-24 years age group, we think it fair to extend this to include the young-at-heart. Youth is a state of mind, not a number, so we don’t have a cut-off age but we nevertheless hope to see many entries from people in their teens – or younger.”

There are three separate categories to enter:

·      Category 1: Photography of industrial buildings, fuel stations, garages, etc., in some way connected to historic vehicles

·      Category 2: Paintings/drawings of industrial buildings, fuel stations, garages, etc., in some way connected to historic vehicles

·      Category 3: Photography showing an owner with his/her historic vehicle

Entries will be published on FIVA social media sites using the hashtags #fiva_classic #historic_vehicles #culture #youth #internationalyouthday #2020youth

The winners of each category will be announced by 30 September 2020 and will receive recognition through publication on FIVA’s website and social media, presentation of the project to the FIVA General Assembly, provisionally held in November, plus they will receive a FIVA book, FIVA vehicle plaque and a recognition diploma.

Entries should be sent to office@fiva.org and culture@fiva.org to arrive no later than 30 August 2020. Please take note that all entries are on condition that FIVA may use the material for promotion and information purposes, in whatever way FIVA sees fit, and without any obligation to the sender(s) or creator(s) of the photographic work. In case entries violate a third party’s copyright, privacy or other rights, the sender / applicant will indemnify FIVA against all compensation that FIVA owes to those third parties.
