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. Zambian teenagers are invited to put their dream into drawings and submit their works. Excellent drawings will be awarded. 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 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 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.
