Unicorns, Spiderman, Pippi Longstocking: Paint or make your superheroes – be creative and original. Send us a photo of your artwork via e-mail or post (see address below). We will publish your piece of art on our Instagram account under the hashtag #HelvetiaHeroes and on our website. We will present the ten artworks with the most ‘likes’ on Instagram to a jury, which will then select the five most creative pieces.

The competition starts on 7 March 2018 and ends on 31 June 2018. During these two months, you will have time to create a piece of art, send us a photo of it and collect ‘likes’. It's worth doing, as we have great prizes. Each of the five winners gets to choose one of the prizes:

- Micro scooter and signed poster of Dario Cologna
- Nikon COOLPIX W100 camera and signed poster of Dario Cologna
- Caran d'Ache Supracolor Soft watercolour assortment with 40 colours and signed poster of Dario Cologna

Nobody goes away empty-handed, each participant is sent a little surprise.
We look forward to seeing your imaginative work.

Please note: The right of use of the submitted works belongs to Helvetia. Children aged from 6 to 12 years from Switzerland may take part in the competition. The closing date is 6 May, 2018, the sooner the piece is submitted, the longer ‘likes’ can be collected.

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.
