VOI Winner

“Racing With the Dolphins” by Sun-ik Kim from Korea was named as the Grand Prizewinner of the VISA Olympics of the Imagination youth art competition. The program attracted 400,000 entries from a total of 23 countries. Visa Olympics of the Imagination challenged school children, ages 9-13, to use their imaginations to create an original piece of art that represented what the Olympic motto of “Citius, Altius, Fortius” (Faster, Higher, Stronger) meant to them. Sun-ik and one of his parents will attend the Salt Lake City 2002 Winter Olympic Games, Utah, USA, as guests of Visa. Sun-ik was selected by renowned Australian artist Ken Done, VOI’s special Ambassador and Artist-in-Residence during the Olympic Games. “I had seen VOI before and I was really struck by the high quality and joy of it,” said Ken. “This piece of artwork reminds people of the absolute ideals of the Games.” VOI winners were selected from Australia, Bahamas, Barbados, Bonaire, Brazil, Canada, Cayman Islands, China, Czech Republic, Curacao, Finland, Germany, Hungary, India, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Russia, South Africa, United States and Uruguay.
