Two young winners of a drawing competition get the chance to go to the Olympics Two young artists have earned a trip to Beijing in the Hong Kong segment of the Visa Olympics of the Imagination Competition. The organisers invited children aged 10 to 14 to create an original artwork that reflected their thoughts on the Olympic Games under the title 'One World, One Dream'. More than 4,000 entries were submitted by children from all over Hong Kong. The panel of judges based their decision on originality, imagination, artistic merit and how well the drawing captured the theme. The work of 14-year-old Charlotte Ho Sze-wing and 11-year-old Lau Tsun-ming stood out above the others. Each of them won a trip for two to the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games. The dutiful young winners said they would take their mothers with them to the mainland capital. 'I'm very happy to have won the competition and I am excited about the trip to Beijing,' said Charlotte, whose picture is based on the theme of peace and a green Olympics. 'I have to thank my art teachers and I must say that I enjoyed drawing the entry for this competition.' Tsun-ming said: 'It's an honour to win this competition and I would treasure the invaluable opportunity to experience the Olympics. I'm very excited.' His artwork aims to show how the Olympics can enhance cultural exchange. Five second-prize winners were each awarded HK$5,000 worth of art classes, while 100 shortlisted entries were presented with Olympic souvenirs. The two first-prize-winning designs will be transformed into flags and hung in Beijing this summer. Some of the best entries will be exhibited in 18 districts around Hong Kong in conjunction with the Home Affairs Department. Hong Kong joined 17 countries as hosts of the worldwide competition. Winners from each country will meet in Beijing during the Games. The overall grand prize winner will win a special trip for two to the 2010 Winter Olympics scheduled to be held in Vancouver, Canada.
