PROMOTING artistic development among secondary school students will be the key focus of the Fiji Airways Art Competition launched by the national carrier in conjunction with Film Fiji yesterday.
Fiji Airways managing director and CEO Stefan Pichler said talents of young Fijians were not limited to just the classroom or the sports fields.
"We know there's genuine passion and creativity for visual arts so we're only too happy to lend our support by way of the Fiji Airways Art Competition," he said.
Film Fiji acting CEO Florence Swamy said they were grateful for the support.
"Participating schools who have registered with Film Fiji for the art competition will submit initial works of art on behalf of their students," she said.
"The winner will receive $1000 for themselves and $1500 for their school. Another cash prize of $500 will also be offered to the student with the most popular piece of art, promoted through the Fiji Airways Facebook page."
