Mexico is the sum of its richness; its breathtaking sights; the monumental archeological zones; its enormous cities and beautiful towns; Mexico is a country with a vast culture and memorable traditions, delicious gastronomy; and above all its habitant that magnify it day a day.

The works received will be a reflection of how children from around the world see our México. How will a child from United States imagine our homeland? How would a Child from Bulgaria, Croatia or Hungary? How a child from México captures its colorfulness?
