ABSEC 20 YEARS CELEBRATION –
OUR CONTINUING JOURNEY
Monday 24 February 2020
Are you young, Aboriginal and a deadly artist?
AbSec is celebrating 20 years! And we want you to help us create the signature artwork to commemorate our landmark celebration – 20 years of caring for our Aboriginal children, families and communities!
AbSec is all about keeping Aboriginal young people at home in their communities, surrounded by culture and effective support services. Aboriginal children and young people are at the centre of everything we do. So we think it’s only right that those same Aboriginal young people (aged 25 and younger) get the opportunity to design the artwork.
The winning artwork will feature at our Symposium and NSW Aboriginal Child and Family Awards night in November 2020, and on AbSec resources and promotional material.
Submit your entry by Friday 10 April 2020 for your chance to win an iPad package valued at $1000. Details below.
HOW TO ENTER
We are looking for an original artwork related to the theme “Our continuing journey”.
It’s important that the artwork is 100% yours (i.e. it doesn’t use samples or elements of anyone else’s work) and original (i.e. it hasn’t been used or submitted elsewhere). It might be a drawing, painting, digital artwork or photo.
For terms and conditions, and to submit your artwork, please use the button below. It’s best if the file you submit is high-resolution. If sending a photo of a hard-copy artwork, remember to put the original in a safe place – if you win, we’ll arrange to collect it from you.
How we’ll judge the winner
A panel of AbSec staff members will review all the artworks and establish a short-list of the most eye-catching designs that reflects the conference theme of Aboriginal children and families.
We promise to exclude people with a conflict of interest (e.g. staff members who are related to competition entrants) from the judging panel. Our panel won’t know who entered which piece, they will just be selecting on which artwork they think best captures our theme ‘our continuing journey’.
These finalists will be opened to a public vote on our Facebook page – our community will pick the winner!
