    Previous edition

    The fourth edition of the Drawing Contest was held in conjunction with the project's World Tour: at each event in each country, contest sessions were organized in which the children of the organizing country participated in order to give them prominence on the spot. Also, since the world tour in the same year could not be carried out in all the countries participating in EXPOCHESS, the other countries were able to participate online by sending their drawings as in the previous two editions.
