AMSD competition Women, art and sport

Ev'Art & Sports: Young Talent Competition

On Saturday March 15, 2008, L'Association Marocaine Sport et Développement (AMSD) held its inaugural Ev'Art & Sports competition in celebration of the 10th Anniversary of the Casablanca Women's 10K 'Run for Fun.' Twenty two young male and female artists from four schools in the Casablanca and Rabat area participated in the competition. Participants had a total of six hours to produce a form of art expressing their interpretation of the theme 'women, art and sport.' The objective of the competition was to discover and exhibit the work of talented Moroccan youth in hopes of encouraging the pursuit and study of art. The competition and resulting works of art were also used to reflect the spirit and soul of the Casablanca Women's Race, celebrating 10 years of women's empowerment through sport. The competition was judged by: M. Bennis Mounir (Vice President, AMSD), M. Chemao Mountassir (Artist, President of the Moroccan Association of Contemporary Art), Mme Aziza Jamal (Artist), M. Issa Ikken (Artist, Poet), M Moukite Moumen (husband of Mme Aziza Jamal).
