Drawing Leo

International contest

We invite all children to draw their own version of Leo, our cuddly mascot. Once submissions are collected, we will select 12 winners whose Leo drawings will be featured in our upcoming Leo calendar.

Starting in January 2020, each month of the calendar will feature one of the winning drawings with an image of the child. The ‘child of the month’ will also be featured on social media with their drawing and a short description of why they wanted to participate in the contest.  

To participate, please:

  • Download the template for the drawing here
  • Submit your child’s drawing of Leo and the completed and signed consent form below to:
    Phonak Communications AG, att. Susanne Wenger, Laenggasse 17, 3280 Murten (Switzerland) or to your local Phonak office.
    Deadline is September 2nd, 2019.
  • E-mail a portrait picture of your child (JPG format, at least 2 MB) with a short write-up (20-30 words) written by your child stating why he or she wanted to participate in the contest to: susanne.wenger@phonak.com. Also due by September 2nd, 2019.

Once submissions are collected, we will select 12 drawings to feature in our calendar. Winners will be announced on this webpage on September 27th, 2019 and will later receive a Leo package (including a plush Leo, Leo storybook, Leo growth chart and other items).

Conditions of participation - Leo drawing contest

The first Drawing Leo international contest was such a success, it is planned to make it an annual tradition. The Phonak pediatric mascot, Leo, brings such joy to hearing impaired children across the globe. So much so, that he now stars in his own calendar to grace the walls around the world.

Phonak  hopes to have even more children draw their own version of Leo this year. With luck their art can be selected for the 2018 Phonak Leo Calendar!

We need your help to promote this contest among your young clients (up to 12 years) and have them to submit their drawings.

To enter the contest have them follow these steps:

1. Download the drawing grid further down on this page. Children should draw their Leo within this template, landscape format.
2. Submit the drawing by September 1st, 2017 together with the signed parental consent statement to

Phonak Communications AG,
Pediatric Team, Att. Susanne Wenger,
Laenggasse 17, 3280 Murten – Switzerland
or to the local Phonak office.

3. Send a portrait picture of the child by e-mail to susanne.wenger@phonak.com. It will be placed next to your child’s drawing, together with its name, age and country.
4. Results will be published on the Leo contest website on September 21st, 2017. The 12 winners will receive a Leo package with Leo toy, book, growth chart, and various other fun items.

If last year’s entries are any indication, there is a lot of young artistic talent.  We can’t wait to see the Leo drawings they come up with for 2017!
