The 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, 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.

2022 competition - “What is beautiful?”

The 52nd Raiffeisen international competition will run from 17 January to 1st April 2022.

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 beauty.

Is beauty a matter of taste? Does objective beauty exist? Does beauty come from within? Does it make us happy?

There are so many things we find beautiful: people, nature, buildings, art, models, structures, as well as stories, thoughts, ideas. And yet, beauty also often makes us suspicious. Are beautiful appearances deceiving? Does beauty make people vain? Is it a means of exerting pressure? Is it imposed on us, by other people, by fashion, by advertising?

How to participate?

Participation is open to children and young people aged 4 to 12.

If you are not participating with a school, simply stop by your Raiffeisen branch before 1 April 2022 to get the drawing paper and later to submit your work. You can also contact us by e-mail:

The prices

By taking part in the traditional Molconcours organised each year by Raiffeisen Bank, children can once again win great prizes:

  • Local prizes
  • National choice prizes
  • People’s Choice award
  • Class prices*

Initially, each drawing is presented to a local panel, which is made up freely in each branch. The drawings of local winners will then be submitted to a national selection panel. Drawings will be judged to determine the national winners at the bank's headquarters. The national winners from cycles 2, 3 and 4 will be automatically entered in the international competition. The People’s Choice award is run on Raiffeisen’s Facebook page which spotlights the national winners’ drawings. Visitors to the page vote for their favourite picture. There is a very special price for the winner.

*Teachers can register their class before 1 April 2022 for a chance to win tickets to Grosbusch Kids. Tickets for 50 classes will be drawn! The tickets will be sent by post after the drawing.



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.
