NAIDOC 2018 Poster Competition and National NAIDOC Awards now open

Date posted: 21 December 2017

The National NAIDOC Committee have announced the opening of the NAIDOC Poster Competition and National NAIDOC Awards for 2018.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists aged 13 years and over are encouraged to start working on their entry which must reflect the 2018 National NAIDOC theme, Because of her we can, and be inclusive of both Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures.

The winning artist will be awarded a $10,000 cash prize which has doubled from previous years, and receive two tickets to attend the National NAIDOC Awards Ceremony in Sydney on Friday 13 July 2018.  The winning  artwork will be recognised nationwide on the 2018 National NAIDOC poster.

The National NAIDOC Committee Co-Chairs, Dr Anne Martin and Mr Benjamin Mitchell are excited to announce the increase in prize money for the winning artist. 'The doubling of the prize money reflects the enormous popularity each year of the National NAIDOC Poster – in 2017 some 80,000 printed posters were distributed across the country,' Dr Martin said.

Entries close 5pm AEDT Monday 5 February 2018.

The National NAIDOC Committee are also encouraging nominations of an outstanding Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander person for a National NAIDOC Award.

There are ten categories that a remarkable Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander person could be nominated for which include art, education and training, sport, environment and leadership.

'The awards recognise the unwavering efforts of individuals who work tirelessly, often on a voluntary basis, to improve the quality of life in their communities,' said Mr Mitchell.

Winners will be announced at the National NAIDOC Awards Ceremony in Sydney on Friday 13 July 2018.

Nominations close 5pm AEDT Monday 26 March 2018.
