Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Marine Life Drawing Competition 2022 — About Competition


Abutting the same coastline of Pearl River Estuary, Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao enjoy the prosperous marine environment and rich resources of the Greater Bay Area. Our beautiful Bay Area is home to a great variety of marine species. Among them are frolicking Chinese white dolphins, tender green sea turtles, gorgeous corals, and various fishes. They share the ocean with us and play a vital role in sustaining the marine ecosystem and establishing its ecological balance.

"Guangdong–Hong Kong-Macao Marine Life Drawing Competition 2022” aims at encouraging students, youngsters and members of the public to express their impressions of marine life through art, with a view to promoting public awareness on conservation of marine resources.
