Event Details

✏️It’s that time of year again… the In Focus Contest is back for 2020!

In Focus is an annual art and writing contest open to youth around the world to expand their awareness on issues revolving vision and eye-care. Anyone aged 10-18 is welcome to submit their original work in either the Writing or Visual Arts category using one of the following prompts:

1. “It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.” – Henry David Thoreau
2. “In order to carry a positive action we must develop here a positive vision.” – Dalai Lama
3. What does it mean to have 20/20 vision?

All submissions will have the opportunity to be published in an anthology, although finalists are guaranteed a feature. The winner from each category will win $100(CAD)!

The deadline to send in your entry is October 3rd, 2020 at 11:59 PM EDT. Check out the “In Focus 2020” page on our website www.worldinfocus.ca for further details about the contest.
