No Time to Waste.
Eco-Art Competition 2021.

Calling All Artists ages 5-22. Use your creativity to help sustain our world!


EarthX is proud to announce the CALL FOR ENTRIES for the 2021 Eco-Art Competition for Student Artists in ages 5 through 22. The theme for the competition is No Time to Waste.

Competition Goals

  1. Give students a voice about how they view the environmental issues in the world in which they live, whether local or global.


  2. Give students a platform to raise awareness about the environmental issues important to them and move others to take action through the creation of their work.
The Theme:

No Time to Waste

This year’s theme is “No Time to Waste” and all artwork entries should center around some aspect of this concept. Art entries can focus on the idea of waste as it is seen in a landfill or as discarded trash, including single-use plastics and its impact on the environment. 

Waste can also be viewed as a misuse of resources, such as water or trees, so conservation of resources, including wildlife, could be a focus. The subject matter of the artwork could also focus on the concept of time and the urgent need for action in a certain environmental arena. 

The artist could also choose to depict solutions that could quickly be put into place in a specified area of the environment. These are just a few ideas and should in no way limit each individual artist’s interpretation of the theme or their own personal statement or message.
