NAIDOC Virtual Art Competition

Submissions Now Closed!

About the NAIDOC Art Competition

This year due to Covid restrictions traditional celebrations for NAIDOC week are shaping up to look different and many community events have been delayed until later in the year. However, at Koori Curriculum we feel that this years theme “Always Was, Always Will be” is so important and can act as a meaningful provocation for learning with Children.

Each year as part of NAIDOC Celebrations there is a poster competition amongst Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Artists. Indigenous artists submit works reflecting the current NAIDOC theme and the chosen winner is then featured on that years NAIDOC poster.

In the spirit of NAIDOC we have decided to hold a virtual art competition for early learning services. We are inviting centres to create their own art work with children that reflects this years NAIDOC theme.

Educators will have to submit their entry by the 4th of August (note: submissions are now closed). This will include a photograph of their art work along with a blog describing the experience.

Voting will close on the 4th of September.

The 10 entries with the highest number of votes will be short listed and reviewed by our Judging Panel.

Judging panel includes Jessica Staines, Garry Purchase and Jasmin Sheppard.

The chosen winner will be announced the 5th of September.

All submissions will be displayed in a virtual gallery.
The winner will receive a $500 store voucher.

Please note that submissions must be by an adult on behalf of the child or children participating.
