Aboriginal Art Competition

Monday 17 Sep 2018

The Wellington Aboriginal Corporation Health Service (WACHS) organisation invites all secondary schools in the Wellington and Dubbo Local Government area, to design the cover of our 2018 Annual Report.

All Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander secondary school children aged from 11 years to 18 years of age are encouraged to design an artwork that reflects the local Indigenous culture and history of the area. The winning entry will best reflect this in their artwork and story.

Darren Ah See, CEO of WACHS said, “This is a great opportunity for the local schools to be involved in a competition that benefits the individuals and schools. It is also a great opportunity for our organisation to be involved locally in the high schools.”

Artists are invited to submit their artwork for the 2018 WACHS Annual Report cover and the winning artwork will be used to create the front and back cover of the report which is distributed state wide.

The winner will receive a $200.00 gift card for their entry and an additional $500.00 gift card provided to the school art department to purchase artwork supplies. The artist will also receive a credit and a photo in the front inside cover of the Annual Report. They will also have the opportunity to see their artwork come to life throughout the graphic design process that is undertaken.

All entries must be accompanied by a signed and completed Entry Form including design story by 5 pm on 5th October 2018. Entry limit of one entry per artist and no late entries will be considered. Entry forms and the terms and conditions for the competition are below.
