The competition has been held since 2013, but earlier it was called “Moscow – for life, for children! Urban Development Policy Through the Eyes of Little Muscovites ”.

Until August 10, we have extended the acceptance of applications for the “Draw a beloved city” competition, said the head Department of Urban Development Policy of Moscow Sergey Levkin.

“To date, the organizers have received more than 1200 applications from 45 regions of Russia. At the same time, most of the works were sent from Moscow, ”said Sergei Levkin.

There are four nominations in the “Drawing a Favorite City” competition. More than 500 works have already taken part in the most popular one – “I walk around Moscow”. Artists depict familiar and unusual views of the capital: buildings, art objects, Moscow courtyards, schools, metro.

The second most popular nomination is “Megapolis of the Future. Moscow-2050 “. The participants showed how they see the capital in the future: how streets, transport and people will change.

You can apply in two more nominations. Green City – Eco-City is dedicated to environmental problems and ways to solve them. “Not all heroes wear raincoats” suggests portraying Muscovites whose actions can be called heroic or useful for the city and its inhabitants.

Each participant can submit an unlimited number of works in digital or paper format. One drawing cannot be submitted simultaneously in several nominations. You can apply by link

All participants are divided into several age categories: from five to seven years old, from eight to 10 years old, from 11 to 13 years old, and from 14 to 16 years old. The works will be evaluated in August and the winners will be announced in September.

The Department of Urban Development Policy of Moscow annually holds a drawing competition to attract young artists to the development of the city and together create a vision of a safe and comfortable metropolis.

The competition was first held in 2013. It was called “Moscow – for life, for children! Urban Development Policy Through the Eyes of Little Muscovites ”. This year, the name and nominations have changed, and the age of the participants has increased.
