The Doodle 4 Google competition is open to all children in the participating countries aged 4 to 17. Young artists are being asked to create an image around the love of football, regardless of which specific team they support.
In judging the Doodles, Google will be looking for designs that capture the spirit of football and fair play, show artistic merit and creativity, and express a love of the game in their title and supporting statement. The contest has two levels: national and international. The national winning Doodle will be displayed on the Google homepage of the relevant country for 24 hours in June.
The national winner will then automatically be entered into the global competition, in which the public from around the world will vote for their overall favorite Doodle.
National contest – Get your art featured in Kenya
Google employees from Google Africa will select the top 40 doodles and invite the finalists to an event in Nairobi, in which the national winner will be announced. The national winning doodle will be displayed on the Kenyan Google homepage for 24 hours.
Global contest – Get your art featured globally!
