Children aged 14 years and below are eligible to enter the competition. This initiative has been a part of Landmark Group’s ongoing corporate social responsibility where young artists have an opportunity to showcase their talents.
As always, Landmark Group is keen on maintaining an excellent rapport and creating awareness about relevant issues among the youth with constant activities and events, while setting a platform for approx 150 students from schools of repute across Kuwait. Children will be provided with a craft pack that includes a drawing sheet and a variety of art materials such as paints, pencils and crayons.
Mr. Saibal Basu, Chief Operating Officer of Landmark Group, Kuwait said, “The Art Olympiad has become an annual event, and we hope to continue to raise the spirits of the students and encourage them to express their views strongly and in an innovative manner.”
“The positive and enthusiastic feedback we have received from schools and students as well as the growing number of participants are a clear indication of the successful engagement the Landmark Group has with the community. We are committed to the Kuwaiti society and are extremely pleased to receive such positive responses.”
Art Olympiad aims to bring fun and entertainment to young artists by encouraging their creativity and also by rewarding them for their participation in the art competition. It provides a grooming platform for these students by helping them improvise their flair and encourage their innovative ability through art.

First, second and third place prizes will be awarded for each category. A total of eight winners will be selected at the end of the competition. Each winner will be awarded with exciting grand prizes and many other valuable gifts. They will also receive certificates and trophies in recognition of their participation, and their schools will be given a plaque of appreciation.
