    The awarded designs will be applied in protective masks for COVID-19 and distributed to vulnerable communities.

    The PERSONA Contest – Together against COVID-19 with CONNECT, eminently cultural, artistic and social, aims to:

    • Encourage artistic production, contributing to the critical, creative and sensory development of the participants, enhancing the interest of youngest participants in fine arts and design.
