BEING able to portray a beautiful natural smile on paper for an art competition can go a long way in creating awareness on health and dental issues in the country.

For more than 15 years, the My Bright Smile Global Art Contest has invited six to nine-year-olds to create art that showcased their beautiful smile.

Organisers received 2000 entries from primary schools in Fiji and other Pacific Island countries. Judges at the competition were Fiji Arts Council member Jerry Wong and the Health Ministry Oral Health Promotion Wellness Centre representative Nemaia Loga.

The final entries were judged on originality, creativity and best rendering of the theme 'Why my Bright Smile is Important'.

Mr Wong said the children who participated in the competition had good skill and a lot of potential.
