Molconcours

Every year, Raiffeisen organizes its now traditional art competition for youngsters aged 4-12 years.

International art contest

Under the auspices of the National Education Minister Claude Meisch, this annual international contest brings together young artists from seven different countries: Luxembourg, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Italy and Finland.

True to its origins and ambitions, Raiffeisen Bank demonstrates a commitment to building strong, long-lasting relationships with all its clients, and especially children and teenagers, through its annual art competition.

2017 competition- ‘Every shade of friendship’

We would like to thank the artists, parents, teachers and all the people who made the 2017 Molconcours a highly successful and colourful event!

Here are some of the highlights of the 2017 Molconcours in pictures and figures:

  • More than 30,000 young artists from Cycles 1, 2, 3 and 4 gave free rein to their creativity.
  • The national jury, composed of teachers, artists and representatives of the Ministry of Education, Children and Youth, selected the 40 national winners. Winners from Cycles 1 & 2 were invited to take part in a film-making workshop with their best friend, and winners from Cycles 3 & 4 spent an exciting day at the Altwies Mill Adventure Park.
  • Jacky G. won 2nd place at the international awards ceremony, which was held in Helsinki this year. Her drawing was selected among those of other participants from France, Germany, Finland, Austria, Italy and Switzerland.
  • 50 classes visited the Luxlait Vitarium. We thank all the teachers for their participation.
  • Finally, the public was also invited to vote for its favourite drawing in our “Molconcours - People’s choice award” competition on Facebook from June 26 to July 12, 2017 and pick the four prize winners. Four of the internet users who took part in the vote also won a prize.

We invite young artists to the next edition of the Molconcours in 2018, placed under the theme: “Inventions that change our lives”.

Competition rules

Children aged 4-12 can take part. Drawings for cycle 1 entrants (4-5 year-olds) will be judged at local and national level. Those for the 6-12 age groups will be judged at local, national and international level. The jury is unbiased and will apply the following criteria: overall impression, autonomy, originality, imagination, force of expression.

The jury’s decisions are final. Legal action is ruled out. When they send in their artwork, participants confirm that they have produced the work themselves (that they are the artist). They authorise us to publish their work. All artworks will remain the property of Raiffeisen. The winners will be notified in writing. There will be no cash equivalent of the prizes. Paint, draw or create how you want to and with what you want to. Choose black and white or colour, Indian ink or watercolours, coloured pencils, chalk, felt pens, spray paint or charcoal. Make a poster, a cartoon strip, a collage or a montage. Use printing techniques or digital processing, computer graphics or photo-montages (but not a single printed photo) – all of these techniques are permitted.

IMPORTANT: You must not reproduce or copy images. We want your own, original ideas! Use your sense of fair play! Your picture should be in A3 format (42 x 30 cm). Please write your full name, address, telephone number, date of birth and the name of your school in capital letters on the entry form.

 

The contact details of participants collected using the ‘Moconcours’ entry form are for the exclusive use of the Raiffeisen group for running the competition and awarding prizes.

Compliant with the amended law dated 2 August 2002 on privacy and data processing, all participants can access, rectify and delete data concerning them; they can exercise this right by writing to Banque Raiffeisen s.c., B.P. 111, L-2011 Leudelange or by email at chargedeprotection@raiffeisen.lu.
