Each year CTEF organizes an art contest to raise awareness of the status of China's rural education, and encourage people to appreciate and contribute to the local community.

Our 13th annual event's theme is "DREAM &FUTURE". 

Maybe you all have a dream, just like me, a wish for a better future. For this, we do what we can. Even when we struggle, we do not give up easily. The dream guides us when we are lost and takes us to a higher place in a mundane life. Take out your pen and paint your dream. Chase the dream and let us celebrate a better future!


Each year selected artworks will be presented in an art album. Award winning works will be printed as appreciation cards used in CTEF’s official communication.


Every participant will receive a digital art album. We will have an award ceremony to distribute awards, to show off the winning work, and to share artists insights!


Rules & Submission:

Creativity; Focus on Theme; Design & Color; Layout; Original; No limitation on material and media used.

The entry must be an original piece of art that relates to the theme. Deadline Jan 15, 2024. One submission for each participant. All finalists must submit their original upon requests. We may use the originals as proof of authenticity and for CTEF-authorized fund-raising events.

Art has no boundary, and neither does love.  A piece of art, a little appreciation, a little love, goes a long way.
