The Lífsvernd Menningarnótt 2012 Art Contest

On Saturday, August 18, Lífsvernd sponsored an art contest during Menningarnótt.  Ten entries were submitted beforehand, and they included photos, drawings, clip art, a painting, and needlework on the theme of „Human Life is Sacred.“  

From 1-5pm on Menningarnótt, the public was invited to view the entries at our booth (a tunnel through the building at Laugavegur 32) and to vote for their favorite.  There was also a 3-person panel of judges (Katrín Tryggvadóttir, Hildur Sigurbjörnsdóttir, and Dagur Jónsson) who evaluated the entries.  In order to help attract people to our booth, we sang some Icelandic and English songs about God and the dignity of human life.

About 200 people voted in the contest, and the winning entry was the drawing by Kristín Cecilsdóttir (see here on the homepage) which included the words

„PERHAPS there is in heaven a most beautiful place—a field of flowers…in every flower, an angel, embracing a sleeping child that was not allowed to be born…The child dreams of the life taken away from it…the most beautiful one… Overseeing this field is the comforting, forgiving, teaching, and loving Mother and Queen of Heaven.“

As her prize, Kristín was awarded a 30.000 kronur gift card from Lífsvernd.
All ten entries are currently on display in Maríukirkja’s parish hall (Raufarsel 8), and will later be displayed in other Catholic parishes around the country to help spread the message that human life is sacred….

Many thanks to everyone who participated and helped in any way to make Lífsvernd’s first Menningarnótt Art Contest a blessed event!

May God help us to build the Culture of Life and bring an end to abortion in Iceland!
