In 1999, the United Nations established the annual International Youth Day on August 12th. This year, FIVA, (the Fédération Internationale des Véhicules Anciens) is launching a creative competition to celebrate this day. FIVA is a worldwide organization dedicated to the preservation, protection and promotion of historic vehicles and related culture, as well as their safe use.

The theme of the competition is “Historic Vehicles and Industrial Heritage” – and young people (and those which still feel young at heart 😉 ) are invited to submit their interpretation of the theme.

As we all have a great Citroën vehicle heritage, let’s be visible in this contest!

There are three separate categories to enter:

  • Category 1: Photography of industrial buildings, fuel stations, garages, etc., in some way connected to historic vehicles
  • Category 2: Paintings/drawings of industrial buildings, fuel stations, garages, etc., in some way connected to historic vehicles
  • Category 3: Photography showing an owner with his/her historic vehicle

Bill Stevenson poses with “Whimsy” – his 2CV artcar.

Entries will be published on FIVA social media sites using the hashtags #fiva_classic #historic_vehicles #culture #youth #internationalyouthday #2020youth.

The winners of each category will be announced by September 30, 2020, and will receive recognition through publication on FIVA’s website and social media, presentation of the project to the FIVA General Assembly, provisionally held in November, plus they will receive a FIVA book, FIVA vehicle plaque and a recognition diploma.

Entries should be sent to secretary@fiva.org and culture@fiva.org to arrive no later than August 30, 2020.
