Award Ceremony


2018 YMM Award Competition for Global Creative Arts is hosted by YMM Art Education Group. It is established to offer children and the youth (age 2-18) a platform to boldly express their original idea and bring their creativity into full play. Fantastic Link: Art out of Waste is featured as 2018 competition theme. Over 50,000 YMM students utilize "restructuring" method borrowed from physics to perform the creation. They put together ready-to-be thrown away toys, unexpected materials; reassemble and restructure them; and turn them into arts of novelty. 

Mythos Yang, the Head of YMM Art Education Research Institute exclaims: "The youngest contestant is just 2 years old. We find the works of lower ages very intriguing. They are full of easiness, liberty, joy and masterly imagination. This is very awesome!"
