Bondalti is promoting a community drawing contest in Estarreja to raise awareness among schools, associations and other local organizations on sustainability topics.

Under the motto "Sustainability and the Industry", the competition invites people to create their drawings under the topics "Innovation", "Energy and Emissions", "People" and "Customers and Ethics" on a sheet of paper, giving the winners the opportunity to illustrate the industrial landscape, as the selected designs will be painted on a wall located at the facilities of Bondalti, at the entrance of the Estarreja Chemical Complex.


The competition, which is exclusively dedicated to the municipality of Estarreja, is aimed at non-profit associations and public-school groups, which must register their participants and indicate the chosen topic until January 31st. The submission of the drawings happens until March 15th and the selection of the four finalists (one per theme) will be made until March 31st. In April, Bondalti will promote mural painting workshops to the selected teams, so that on May 31st they are ready to transpose their paper designs to the designated wall.


The jury is composed by representatives of Bondalti, representatives of the Estarreja City Council and the artist who will lead the workshops. Their evaluation is based on creativity and originality, as well as on the interpretation of the chosen theme.


The four schools/associations selected for the mural painting will receive donations from Bondalti: 1500 euros for the absolute winner - to be revealed on May 31st - and 300 euros for each of the other participants.
