Contest Regulations of the Children’s Drawings Contest
“And Dear to Us Remains Your Noble Image” dedicated to the 220th anniversary
of the birth of Alexander Pushkin

Committee for Culture of Volgograd region, Volgograd Regional Children's Art Gallery.

A special talent of poets and writers gives them the opportunity to find a key to any heart, and express in their works a feeling that would be clear to any person anywhere in the world.
For this reason, we call many writers and poets "international" - their work stirs the heart strings of people of different countries and nationalities. In this way, the love for poetry unites many different people.
In 2019, Russia celebrates the 220th anniversary of the birth of Alexander Pushkin.
Alexander Sergeevich Pushkin, a Russian poet and writer, is sometimes called “the national Russian writer” and considered the supreme poet in the Russian literature. His influence on the Russian culture is still felt in the modern times, not only through his poetry, but also through his prose, which founded the tradition of the Russian realism in literature.
His universal artistic thinking and the richness of his spiritual world allow us to talk about him as a writer involved not only in Russian, but also in the world cultural process.
We offer you to learn about poems and prose by Pushkin and suggest your illustrations to his works; his portraits; drawings about his life.
