Principal secretary for culture Benjamine Rose accepted the donations in a small ceremony held recently in the office of the Ministry of Tourism and Culture at the National Cultural Centre.
The sponsors are Air Seychelles, the Seychelles Civil Aviation Authority, Qatar Airways and Ministry of Education.

The companies have sponsored mainly digital gadgets such as laptops, ipads and Qatar has sponsored air fares to any of its destination.

“With the prizes that the winners will win they will be able to express themselves more,” Mrs Rose said. She added that the entries in the competitions were at a high level. Most of the categories have already been judged and the rest will be finalised by the end of this week.

“By looking at the works of the participants we can definitely say that we will have prominent artists in the near future.”
