Civil servants and artists were yesterday encouraged to submit their works for an exhibition which will be held in June by the Macau government and the Beijing Youth Federation to celebrate the Olympic Games.

The three-day exhibition, between June 28 and June 30 at the Tourism Activity Centre, will display about 60 pieces of artworks including calligraphy, Chinese paintings, oil paintings, gouache paintings and prints produced by Macau as well as Beijing’s artists.

The event is co-organised by the Professional Civil Servants Association of Macau (ATAPM) and Beijing Youth Federation and in conjunction with the Public Administration and Civil Service Bureau (SAFP), Macao Sport Development Board and the Macau Artist Society.

Speaking at the press conference calling for public entries, ATAPM president Chan Mun Cheong said the aim of the exhibition was to show Macau’s support for the Beijing Olympic Games, to promote the Chinese culture and also to facilitate artistic exchange between Macau and Beijing.

While about 30 artworks from Macau will be selected by the judging panel formed by the Artist Society, the Beijing exhibits will be provided by the Beijing Youth Federation.

Themed on the Beijing Olympic Games, the displayed entries will be compiled into books and distributed to authors together with exhibition certificates.

The deadline for submitting entries is May 15 and all works will be returned to their authors within one month after the exhibition.
