The European Commission on Sunday launched a drawing competition that
"calls on children all over the world to express their vision of gender
equality", according to a commission press release on Friday. The
third-annual launch was timed to coincide with International Women's
Day. Contestants have until May 15 to submit their drawings, and in
June a jury of European children working "in the presence of Princess
Mathilde" of Belgium will select two winners from each region to
receive a prize equivalent to US$1,264.
