The competition is open to children and young people from anywhere in the world.

Our vision is for children’s paintings in the Celebrate the Sea Art competition to send a simple but powerful message: children of the world are joining hands to celebrate the beauty of our ocean and to promote the conservation of sharks.  protect sharks and they are enjoying the beauty of our seas. We look forward to seeing their raw talent, ingenuity and imagination and their contribution to solving the problems our ocean world.
