COME up with your own image of 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs', paint it and send it for a charity project to help children in need of help. The 'Snow White' venture is part of this year's Operation Santa Claus programme and is a fund-raiser for the Hong Kong Society for the Protection of Children for its Christmas activities. The society protects children who have been left unsupervised or left with unregistered child-minders. The project is organised by Radio Three, Radio Television Hong Kong (RTHK) and the South China Morning Post, as well as the Hong Kong Society for the Protection of Children (HKSPC). The HKSPC, one of Hong Kong's oldest charities, is the largest non-government organisation which provides day-care for children who would otherwise be left unattended. To draw attention to the Operation Santa Claus project, Radio Three is organising a painting competition to coincide with a performance of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs , to be performed by the Hong Kong Players as the theatre group's Christmas pantomime. There will be 11 shows to be held from December 8 to 17 at the Shouson Theatre, the Hong Kong Arts Centre. Children between five and 11 years can send in their own painted interpretations of 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs' on A4 or A3 paper, enclosing a $10 entrance fee. The paintings should be sent to Operation Santa Claus, Radio Three, PO Box 70200, Central Post Office. The entries should be accompanied by the participant's name, age, school and telephone number. Helen Weeks, production assistant of Radio Three, RTHK, said the children should present their own ideas of 'Snow White' but reminded applicants that all entries must be painted. 'They can paint any interpretation of 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs'. It can be in Hong Kong style, Christmas style or any other style they can think of. But all pieces must be painted. No crayons or felt-tip pens please!' Ms Weeks said. The deadline for entries is November 10. The results will be announced during the project's launching on November 30. The winner will receive $600 worth of painting equipment from Windsor and Newton, four tickets to see Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, and a Hong Kong Players T-shirt. The winning piece will be used on the front cover of the pantomime programme. The second prize includes $400 worth of painting equipment from Windsor and Newton, two pantomime tickets and a Hong Kong Players T-shirt. The third prize is $200 worth of painting equipment from Windsor and Newton and two pantomime tickets. The second and third placed paintings will be put on display in the lobby of the theatre.
