Winners’ List 2021
_________________________
 


 

 

 
Due to pandemic, the deadline of this year's competition was delayed to June 15, 2021. Many schools and art studios were closed, but we still received about one-third entries compared with the previous years. The art works submitted were of very high quality, making the selection by our experienced judges a challenging task.

The following 48 pieces were chosen from a total of 82 entries (Brush Painting 61, Calligraphy 21) submitted by 15 different Chinese Schools, arts studios, and individuals from 8 states (CA, CT, GA, MA, SC, TN, TX, WA ). The images of the 48 winners’ art works will be posted on our website around August 30, 2021. We have also listed the finalists. Their works were also excellent.

The names of the judges are listed at the end of this release. Judge Professor Waifong Loh 陸惠風 experienced discomfort shortly after the jury started. He went home to rest and is feeling much better now. His score sheets were not included in the calculation this year.

This competition is funded in part by: “The Tan Family Culture Fund” and donations from the general public. It will be repeated next year. The deadline for submission will be April 15, 2022, and the jury date will be Saturday, April 23, 2022.

第30屆全美青少年國畫書法比賽, 6月26日經朱蓉、杜瑋、林浩宗、方正厚 4位評委,  二小時的精挑細選反覆審查, 己由全部 82件作品中選出48件金銀銅佳作等得獎作品, 將獲獎金獎狀。評委陸惠風開始後不久就感到不適, 並回家休息。本次參賽作品來自﹔加州、康州、喬治亞州、麻州、南卡羅來納州, 田納西州, 德州, 及華盛頓州等8州, 15所中文學校、書畫學苑及個人。全部參賽作品, 包括國畫61件, 書法21件, 將紐頓市僑教中心 (Chinese Culture Center, 90 Lincoln Street, Newton Highlands, MA.) 的大廳四週、前廳及前後走廊貼滿。

主辦單位中華表演藝術基金會會長譚嘉陵表示, 今年的總參賽人數僅為往年的三分之一。因為 Covid - 19許多學校和工作室都關閉了, 並將課程改為在線課程。在線教授國畫和書法是一個挑戰。甲組 (九歲及九歲以下) 參賽人數減少了很多。但是, 我們收到的每份作品都是非常出色。雖然國畫減少, 但書法增加, 有很多幅對聯及四至10聯屏幅。對聯及屏幅當成一件作品處理。本項比賽己成為很多學校及學生每年固定的大型活動, 並在學校內己先行初賽。今年的作品件件精彩, 評委雖都是專業行家, 法眼取捨之間也頗為難。今年也依往例, 將入圍者名單公佈, 鼓勵各地學生, 百尺竿頭更進一步。期望各校老師家長勉勵學生, 以參與為重, 不要對是否得獎過份在意, 以發揚中華文化的精髓, 學習傳統中國國畫及書法共勉之。

明年仍是4月15日舉行, 希望大家踴躍參加。本項活動得到 「譚嶽泉蕭運貞文教紀念基金」及大家的捐款贊助。查詢請冾譚嘉陵, Email: Foundation@ChinesePerformingArts.net.
