Mother's Day creative art contest deadline looms
A Mother’s Day art competition run by local company Business Systems Limited will end this Friday with the winners announced on Saturday.
The competition deadline for the “All for Mom Art Contest” is this Friday 4pm, according to the company’s marketing officer Caroline Tuipoloa.
“To enter the competition, a drawn portrait of your mother or inspiration that reminds you of your mother or mother figure or it can be from the bible then you can describe how that person reminds you of your mum,” she said.
The entry is then posted on Facebook through the company’s business page. The entries with the most likes and shares will win the contest.
The BSL Retail Manager, Hesed Steffany, told Samoa Observer that they decided on a Mother’s Day art contest for a good change, and urged family members to join the contest to honour their mothers and hopefully win some prizes.
“Many times it would be a short story or poem but having a competition like this, where kids and people of all ages can explore their creative artistic side through sketches and portraits, during this long time they’ve been at home during the lockdown,” she added.
This is the first time for BSL to run such a contest for Mother’s Day as previous competitions did not focus on art.
The entries for the 2020 competition will be scrutinised by the marketing team to ensure that they are an original creation. Any entries that would appear to have been sourced through Google will be disqualified.
The company has already received 22 entries with more expected in the lead-up to the deadline on Friday.
“An entry should be a sketch or portrait drawn by the person with the entry. We will then post it on our page for people to see and like,” said Ms Tuipoloa.
“From the entries that have come in, it’s amazing. The talent that we see through these drawings is unbelievable, especially the kids. The furthest entry we have received is from Aleipata.”
Five prizes have already been confirmed for the winners and they include a washing machine, refrigerator, gift hamper, spa treatment and a gift voucher.
The art competition coincides with the company’s Mother’s Day promotions, such as their All for Mom Hot Deals, Mother’s Day Package and Mother’s Day Phonenanza.
