IBRA News 11.04.2023 – IBRA 2023: 608 children paint “My World”

(dw-dphj/pcp) On the occasion of IBRA, the German Philatelic Youth organised the painting competition “My World”. The task was for children to graphically depict “their world”. It did not matter whether it was about hobbies, the family or a topic that moved the children. A total of 588 works by children between the ages of 7 and 12 were selected in a first round and were eligible for further evaluation. For the competition, cash prizes were offered for the three best “works of art” as well as for the school classes and schools with the highest participation.

First place went to Shirin from the Geschwister-Scholl-Schule in Rodgau. She painted a turtle in the water.
Alisa from Berlin won second place. She thematised the topic of “peace” with a dove.
The 3rd place is dedicated to the motto “Protect the environment!” and was created by Emma from Rauderfehn Primary School.

With a total of 158 entries, the primary school Ramsloh receives the school prize worth 250 €. Class 4b of the Bümmerstede Oldenburg primary school wins the class prize worth € 150.

“Shirin has given a lot of thought to the topic “My World” and has realised this graphically in a very impressive way,” Oliver Sasse, illustrator of the popular JUNGE SAMMLER comic “Fridolin & Filu” congratulates the winner of the drawing competition.
With 608 works, the evaluation jury consisting of Oliver Sasse, Heinz Wenz, Heiner Schrop, Markus Ligl, Roman Machauer and Dittmar Wöhlert did not have an easy choice. In a second round, 30 works were selected. The winners of the painting competition were then chosen from among them.
The 10 best works can be admired at https://www.dphj.de and will be exhibited during IBRA 2023 in the Philately Centre at the DPhJ e.V. stand. The DPhJ will have a “Stamp Individual” sheet of 10 produced from this.
