The contest entitled Những Người Ở Tuyến Đầu (People on the Frontline) was launched on April 1 for children in Hanoi aged from 6 to 15.

"When I read articles about COVID-19, I saw the hard work of health workers," said artist Nguyen Thu Huyen, founder of House of Art.

"It reminded me of my old days in the hospital for a long time. I was saved by the doctors. So I hope the contest will be meaningful to encourage and support the health workers who are working hard day and night with their enthusiastic hearts.

"This is a way to help children to get to know and raise their awareness about COVID-19."

The contest has received many drawings after just a few days of launching.

 

The strokes are innocent sometimes scrawled but clearly show the message and affection the children want to convey, Huyen said.

As well as drawings, the contest organisers want to encourage children to make artworks using various materials and in various media formats.
