More interests have again been received by Colgate Palmolive for this year’s ‘My Bright Smile Global Art Contest.’

The competition is split into four categories – the six, seven, eight and nine-year-old categories.

Colgate Palmolive marketing manager Suma Molia said they had been finding it hard to pick the winners because of the amount of entries and the high standard of entries received.

Selection for the winners was conducted yesterday to be sent to Australia for the South Pacific judging.

The winner from the judging in Australia would get into the final judging in New York.

The winners from the final judging in New York will have their artwork feature in the 2015 Bright Smiles, Bright Futures winning entry will feature in the 2016 My Bright Smile Calendar.

“This will be displayed in the global calendar and it will be printed in New York. Previous years it was also around the same amount, but overall for the entries coming in it is getting difficult for us to judge because their artworks are getting more creative,” Mrs Molia said.

This year’s Bright Smiles, Bright Futures My Bright Smile Calendar featured a Fiji artist for the third consecutive year.

Fiji’s budding young artist, Shivesh Pranav Prasad, who attends Labasa Sangam Primary School won US$250 for himself and US$500 grant for his classroom. Prasad’s artwork was among the 12 winning entries from around the world which featured in the 2015 Bright Smiles, Bright Futures Calendar and was the lone representative from the Pacific Region (including Australia and New Zealand).

Meanwhile, the winner of the 2012 competition, Sadhika Raj, of Waidamudamu in Labasa was also the sole South Pacific representative.
