The main topics of the contest are “Health of My Hands” (clothes, toys, food, family, friends, home and city), and “The Hands That Take Care of Me” (father, mother, doctors and health care staff).

Children aged 4 to 18 are asked to upload their paintings on the IIDCYA portal available at paintfest.kpf.ir.

The deadline for the national section is May 20 and the international section is July 15.
