2023-03-01 18:45

Over the years, African youth have expressed strong interest in the outer space and their desire to “fly to space” some day in the future. We are ready to actively support these “African Dreams” of exploring the vast universe.

The Secretariat of the Chinese Follow-up Committee of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC) and the China Manned Space Engineering Office are co-hosting a painting competition on the theme of “My Dream” starting from 1 March, 2023. Zimbabwean teenagers are invited to put their dream into drawings and submit their works. The Chinese and African sides will jointly select 10 First Prize, 15 Second Prize, 25 Third Prize among all entries. Besides trophies, first-prize winners will be awarded about 550 USD, second-prize winners about 350 USD and third-prize winners about 300 USD. Moreover, 10 awarded works will be brought to Tiangong space station by the Shenzhou crewed spacecraft within this year, and be exhibited on social media platforms to reach a wider audience.

The participant is advised to submit the photo of his/her work together with its title and a brief introduction(about 200 words), and the participant’s name and contact information to the Embassy’s email: embcnzw@gmail.com and send the original work to the Embassy (Address:58 Golden Stairs Road, Mount Pleasant, Harare; Contact person: Ms. Grace, +263242332760) by 25 March 2023. The texture of the paper on which the painting is created is not subject to any limitation but the paper size shall not exceed A3 format i.e. 420mm*297mm.
