The 2022 EarthX Eco-Art Competition challenges students to create a work of art that addresses the theme: Plant the Seed. Examples of how this theme can be interpreted include pollinators, reforestation, rain gardens, community gardens or more figuratively, taking action for any environmental solution. Artists should not be bound by these examples, and are encouraged to apply their own meaning to the theme.

Young people, ages 5-22, are invited to share their talent and passion for the environment by creating a 2-D or 3-D work of art that addresses this year's theme: Plant the Seed. Submissions are accepted online from May 26, 2021-January 24, 2022.Cash prizes will be awarded in 4 age-group categories.

The artwork should address this year’s theme of Plant the Seed. The subject matter of the art can center around different aspects of this theme. It could focus on the benefits of creating a rain garden to protect a watershed, a community garden to support an urban area, or regenerative farming to improve both water quality and climate change. One could also apply the theme to the planting of a tree as a means to combat the effects of deforestation, increase CO2 capture or habitat security for wildlife. The idea that planting seeds for a garden promotes the health of pollinator populations could also fit into this concept. The theme could also be interpreted more figuratively to imply that like planting a seed, taking an action in connection to any environmental problem can grow into sustainable solutions. These are just a few ideas and should no way limit the artist into how the theme can be represented.
