An art competition encourages teenagers to paint a brighter future for Hong Kong while raising funds for a good cause.

Organised by property agency Colliers International, the contest is open to students aged below 18. They will be vying for a total of 12 titles in the kindergarten, primary or secondary categories.

Entries must be in two-dimensional format on A3 paper on the theme 'Creating a Brighter Future'.

Each entry should be submitted with a HK$20 donation. All proceeds will go to The Society for the Relief of Disabled Children (SRDC).

Established in 1953, the SRDC's mission is to provide medical, rehabilitation and educational services for disabled children in Hong Kong.

Using funds raised by the community, the society established a convalescent home for children suffering from tuberculosis in Sandy Bay in 1955. It was later expanded and became the Duchess of Kent Children's Hospital.

Entries should be sent to Catherine Poon, Colliers International (HK), Suite 5701, Central Plaza, 18 Harbour Road, Wan Chai.

The deadline for submissions is 5pm on August 28.
