Twelve talented young Hong Kong artists will share their definition of joy through a calendar which will be sold worldwide. The Springs of Joy calendar drawing competition, organised by the Salvation Army, attracted entries from 500 children aged between two and 18. The aim of the competition was to encourage youngsters to express their definition of joy through paintings. The junior winner was Chan Cheuk-hei, while Ip Long-yin won in the intermediate category and Chu Shuk-fan took top place in the advanced age group. The calendar will mark the Year for International Youth and Children for the Salvation Army worldwide, as well as the 75th anniversary of the Hong Kong Salvation Army. The calendars, priced at $20 each, will be limited to a print run of 2,500. The standard of the artworks impressed the judges. Zeze Lai, one of the judges, said the younger artists focused on their personal sources of joy, while the intermediate group took a broader approach. 'The works of the advanced age group left an enduring impression ... [the artists] attained a professional standard,' Ms Lai said. Another judge, DJ Bing Bing, said the compositions submitted by the advanced age group were rich and unique. 'The harmonious use of colour captured the joy of human affection,' she said. 'The professional skills shown in the drawings provided depth to the delicate expression of feelings in the pictures and gave viewers things to reflect on.'
