The challenge is open for everyone. Each day, participants can send paintings of any material and size to the photo album on the Hanoi Urban Sketch Facebook page.

The challenge encourages participants to draw about the daily life of the people and forces participating in epidemic prevention and control; vegetables, flowers, trees, houses, streets; utensils, equipment for preventing and fighting against the epidemic; food and drinks that can boost the immune system, etc...

According to Architect Tran Thi Thanh Thuy, head of the Urban Sketchers Hanoi, the team will choose the best works to make an online video exhibition and auction. Part of the proceeds will be donated to support programmes on Covid-19 prevention and control.

The following are some paintings sent by participants:
