The 18th Alexandru Ene Drawing and Essay Writing Competition

The Romanian Nuclear Energy Association, AREN, recently organised, together with the Romanian Atomic Forum (ROMATOM), the annual essay competition entitled The Atom – Our Friend and the 18th edition of the Alexandru Ene Drawing Competition. Both began back in early April, and by the end of May students from across the country had sent in their literary and artistic creations as entries to both competitions.

this year's Edition included 272 drawings

The Alexandru Ene Drawing Competition took place at the national level and followed the same format as for the previous edition, addressing educational establishments separately according to their profile, whether general or art specialized schools. In order to ensure wide-scale participation students were categorised not only according to their school profile but also according to their age group. So, the general schools profile consisted of three age groups, 7-10 years, 11-14 years and 15-19 years. For the art schools there were only two age groups: 11-14 years and 15-19 years.

On the whole, this year's edition featured 272 drawings, of which 76 schools came from art schools/high schools and 196 from general schools. This year’s essay writing competition registered its largest ever number of entries: 67.

Each entry featured a “transfiguration” of science and knowledge received from their teachers, either in the form of a drawing or painting (many of them were real works of art) or essays that put into vivid words and narrative the most unusual, challenging and sometimes abstract ideas and descriptions. Each year children are becoming more and more creative, non-conformist in their approach, which attracted the attention of the jury that had a tough time deciding which ones were the best.

The final judgment was left, as always, to the specialists in the fields of nuclear sciences, architecture, fine arts, language and communication and advertising.

The competition culminated with the awarding of the prizes to the winners and with an exhibition of the winning entries at the Parliament Palace’s Constantin Brancusi Exhibition Hall. The works were exhibited throughout the week of 3-7 June, where they could be admired by all those who visited the exhibition halls at the Palace of Parliament, whether Romanians or not.

This edition registered the largest number of essays: a total of 67

The winners’ classification and the award-winning essays or pictures from the exhibition can be viewed by visiting or the Facebook page of AREN.
