Vietnam drawing competition draws attention to bloody animal festivals
13 November 2019
On the 28th of October, an awards ceremony was held at the Vietnam Bear Rescue Centre. The prizes were for a drawing competition to raise awareness about animal welfare and cruel animal festivals. There were lots of great entries and picking the winners was a challenging task for the judges.
Fortunately, we had the help of some talented and experienced judges including professors from the Vietnam University of Fine Arts, well known illustrators La Studio from Ho Chi Minh city, as well as our Animal Welfare Director Dave Neale.
First prize went to Cam Anh Ng for a powerful piece that closely focuses on a pig used in a pig slaughter festival. The judges were impressed by the powerful composition and use of colour.
On winning, Cam Anh Ng said:
“It is a nice surprise to find out that I won this competition. With this drawing, the key message I want to give is that animals suffer in the same way that humans do when they bleed. I really hope people will understand that animals need to be treated better to avoid such cruelty.”
