Claudia Ruiz, from Sant Boi de Llobregat, the artist picked for the FPdGi’s Christmas card

Chosen from among 48 drawings by children aged between 6 and 16 years old

25/11/2014

A drawing by Claudia Ruiz, a 13 year-old girl from Sant Boi de Llobregat, has been chosen to illustrate this year’s Prince of Girona Foundation Christmas card. The drawing was the winning entry in a competition organised by the Foundation for the participants in its Pygmalion project. The winning drawing is entitled "For an equal and fair world where all children have the right to play".

The FPdGi launched the drawing competition for children involved in its Pygmalion project on 27 October. A total of 48 entries were submitted from children in Girona, Madrid, Sant Boi de Llobregat and L'Hospitalet de Llobregat, cities where the Foundation runs this programme to foster educational integration through sport.

The winning entry was chosen by an exceptional jury formed of Hugo Fontela, a young Asturian artist established in Madrid and 2014 Prince of Girona Arts and Literature Award winner, Víctor Julio and Joan Delmàs, graphic designers at Traslapuerta.

The jury awarded first prize to Claudia Ruiz from the Marianao Foundation (Sant Boi de Llobregat) because of her skilful representation of children’s strength and optimism, even in adverse conditions, while also portraying the values of happiness, prosperity, generosity and enthusiasm.

Second prize went to Sokayna Chafi, from Pont Major in Girona, for depicting how different cultures come together through love, equality, friendship and peace. Abdelaziz Chafi, also from Pont Major, won third prize for his outstanding painting ability and the depth of emotion he expresses with his images, creating a scene of happiness, enthusiasm and prosperity. These two young Girona residents are involved in the Pygmalion project through the SER.Gi Foundation.

Claudia Ruiz, in addition to seeing her drawing illustrate the FPdGi’s Christmas card, will also receive a diploma and the Marianao Foundation in Sant Boi de Llobregat, the organisation the winner participates in, will receive a pack of educational material valued at €500. The drawings entered for the competition will later go on display in the Pygmalion project’s four locations.
