The Molconcours

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

! Given the current circumstances, we have to make some adjustments for the 50th edition of the Molconcours.

As the local prize ceremonies will not take place this year, the lucky winners will receive their prizes by post. We are sorry to announce that Class prizes have to be cancelled this year but the Public Choice Award on our Facebook page is maintained and will be held over the summer.

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

2020 competition - “What makes you happy”

The 50th Raiffeisen international competition will run from 13 January 2020 to 27 March 2020.

This year, artists in cycles 1,2,3 and 4 (aged 4 to 12) can give free rein to their creativity on the theme of happiness.

Happiness can be a moment of joy: receiving a gift, listening to beautiful music, partying. Happiness can be linked to personal experience: daring to do something, helping someone achieve something difficult. Happiness can take the form of bonds: the love of a pet, friends or family.

Happiness is a very personal subject that resonates with everyone. It raises questions to which we may very well respond artistically:

What is happiness for me?
How to find happiness?
Can we keep it?

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 Banque 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.
