  • Description/Summary

    For our third and final challenge in association with WWF, we’re excited to invite you to paint and enter our competition in support of World Rivers Day, closing date of 25th September 2019.

    Wetlands are a vital source for food, raw materials and genetic resources for medicines; they mitigate floods, protect coastlines and build community resilience to disasters, and they play an important role in transport, tourism and the cultural and spiritual wellbeing of people.


    We’d like you to invite you to paint some form of river for our third and final painting challenge.  This can be a river scene, a boat on a river, swimmers or fish in the water.  As long as your painting reflects river life, it will count.  We’ll reveal a selection of the entries in the November issue of Paint magazine.

  • Prizes & awards

    Possible inclusion in November’s issue of Paint.
