 The Lions Peace Poster competition theme for 2022-2023 is 'Lead with Compassion' and Artists must be 11, 12 or 13 years of age on the 15th of November in the year of entry to compete in the International Competition.

This is an opportunity to encourage young people in your local community to think about the importance of world peace, tolerance and international understanding. It also gives young people an outlet for artistic self-expression that can be shared with their local community and possibly the world. Clubs can encourage these young people to share their unique visions with the world, through pictures. Expression of theme, along with artistic merit and originality, are the three criteria that posters are evaluated on at all judging levels. On the District level, one poster is chosen to advance to the Multiple District, then the Multiple District chooses one poster to send to International Headquarters for the International competition. There are two levels of International competition: semi-final and final. 24 posters are selected for the final. The grand prize winner receives US$2,500. 

All posters must be no smaller than 330mm by 508mm and must be no larger than 508mm by 600mm. No collages are allowed, along with no numbering or wording to be on the poster in any language, nothing may be attached to the poster in any way, posters cannot be mounted on another surface or laminated. The Label, which is contained in the Kit, MUST be attached to the back right-hand bottom corner of the poster. No photocopies are allowed.

Entries failing to meet specific contest rules and deadlines will be disqualified. The closing date for the Peace Poster is the 15th of November, the posters MUST be postmarked AT THE LATEST by the 15th of November. Any posters with later postmarks will be disqualified.
