Kids from SOS Children's Village choose costumes for the film and TV series THE ADVENTURES OF THE LITTLE SHOEMAKER

Children from SOS Children's Village Lekenik will appear in the motion picture and TV series THE ADVENTURES OF THE LITTLE SHOEMAKER, and they chose appropriate costumes for the occasion. The motion picture and TV series are based on the children’s classic by Ivana Brlić Mažuranić, The Brave Adventures of Lapitch.

This is the first time that this popular novel is being filmed with live actors and children in main roles. The filming is funded by the Croatian Audiovisual Centre, as a project of cultural and national importance. Children from the SOS Children's Village Lekenik will participate in the making of a motion picture for the first time in their lives.


Trying out and choosing the right costumes kept the children in the world of fairy tales and fantastical stories that they entered a few days before, with the launch of the campaign The Most Beautiful Fairy Tales for Children. This campaign invites all fans of fantasy and imagination to make illustrations based on the fairy tales listed at the website www.bajke.sos-dsh.hr, send them in and thus participate in the contest Illustrations for the Most Beautiful Fairy Tales for Children. The best illustrations will be published in the book The Most Beautiful Fairy Tales for Children, scheduled for release in late November.


The contest is open to all children of preschool and school age under 14. We invite all eligible children to submit their entries during the period between September 1 to September 27, 2012, by sending them to the following address: SOS Children's Village Croatia, Zavrtnica 5/III, 10 000 Zagreb. All entries submitted by the specified deadline will be published in an online gallery, and every participant with the published illustration will receive a free copy of the book.


All participants should select one of the fairy tales listed at www.bajke.sos-dsh.hr and draw characters from the tales as they imagine them. All drawing materials are allowed, such as pencils, crayons, felt tips, tempera, water colors and all other materials. The size of the submitted drawing cannot exceed the A3 format.


Fairy tales have been enchanting children for many generations, offering them engaging scenarios that carry them away to worlds of joy and fantasy. Children’s favorite things, such as drawing, having fun and laughing, make this world a better place and inspire adults to remember, at least for a moment, their own carefree times.


Find out more about entering the contest, submission rules, voting, announcement of results and other important details of the campaign at the official campaign website http://bajke.sos-dsh.hr
