Paint a picture or make a model of your life in the future – we’ve got great prizes in store for the five most creative works of art.

Would you like to design your own life and share your creative ideas with us? Then take part in our children’s art competition! From flying cars to a house on Mars or a robot living next door: we want to know what you imagine your life will be like in the future.

The world is in your hands: paint a picture or make a model of your life in the future and send us a photo of your creation by e-mail or post (details below). We will share all of your creations on our Instagram account with the hashtag #HelvetiaFuture so that you can receive likes. The ten works of art with the most likes will be presented to our jury, who will then select the five most creative ones. The winners will be able to choose one of the following prizes:

  • Rio Roller Signature roller skates
  • FUJIFILM Instax Mini 8 Minion Polaroid camera
  • Caran d’Ache Supracolor Soft watercolour pencils – selection of 40 colours

But even if you don’t win, you won’t miss out: all participants will receive a little surprise gift as a thank-you. So it’s worth taking part!

The art competition begins on 15 April 2019 and ends on 1 July 2019. During this time, you can demonstrate your creativity, send us a photo of your work of art and collect likes. A little tip: The earlier we receive your photo, the sooner it can start receiving likes on Instagram! All works of art will also be published on our website at the end of the competition.

Important: Helvetia has right of use for the works of art submitted. Children participating in the competition must be aged 6 to 12 and must be resident in Switzerland.

Art and Helvetia

Art has great significance for Helvetia. The company’s art collection comprises over 1700 works, and is one of the most important collections in the field of contemporary Swiss art. Artworks from the collection are presented in the Helvetia art foyer in both monographic and thematic displays. Each year, Helvetia awards an art prize to young talents and art sponsorship is also gaining in importance. Helvetia is, after all, the leading art insurer in Switzerland. This close connection with art forms the background of this competition.
