Although football is not the most popular sport in Lithuania, it undoubtedly raises many positive emotions among both players and supporters. We believe that sport and art have the power to unite people, regardless of race, ethnicity, language, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. Therefore, we invite you to take part in the art competition entitled “The Art of Football”, which aims is to encourage students to express their ideas on how football can advance human rights (related to e.g. gender, race, nationality, ethnicity, tolerance or cultural diversity) and promote values, creative skills and self-expression among students.
The authors of the best works will be awarded:
1st place – a smart bracelet and a 4-hour ticket to a water park
2nd place – a mini table football and a ticket for Spiderman’s Adventures (artificial rock climbing)
3rd place – a football and a rock climbing ticket to the UNO Park
Competition entries should be:
- in line with the theme of the competition,
- made on a sheet of A3 paper,
- made with the use of paints, markers, pens, pencils, tempera, coal or other art materials – the works can include elements from additional materials, e.g. thread, straw, wool, wood, leaves, etc.),

- free of any illegal or harmful information that incites hatred, dispute, racism or xenophobia.
The competition can be entered by pupils from grades 5-10 of schools in the city of Vilnius. The entries should be submitted no later than October 18th, 2019 to the address: European Foundation of Human Rights, J. Dobkevičiaus g. 6, Vilnius LT-02189.
The art competition is part of the Fare Network initiative organized worldwide within the “Football People” week. The Fare Network is an organization of people, informal groups and organizations working to combat inequality in football and to use sport as a tool for social change. Fare’s commitment to non-discrimination is based on the principle that football, as the most popular sport in the world, belongs to all of us and can promote social cohesion.
