The total number of participants was over 700 people. Works each of them were included in album “Children paint world” Central Asia 2013-2014.” This album was presented to every participant and guest of the  festival.

The "Children are painting the world" album series, was initiated by UNESCO in 1999. It demonstrates the rich world of children's art. It shows originality, sincerity, and children's ability to communicate in the language of art, which, as we know, has no barriers. Kazakhstan has expanded the boundaries of the project's original scope, and now the project in addition to children's drawings reflects almost all kinds of children's art, including sculpture, decorative and applied art, Kazakh folk applied art, design, as well as car, ship and airplane modeling. After ten years, the Festival has become a regular sub-regional UNESCO activity in Central Asia.
