2020 NAIDOC Week poster competition winner Tyrown Waigana was recently presented with a framed version of his poster design by Minister for Indigenous Australians, the Hon Ken Wyatt MP in small ceremony in Perth.
The framed version of the poster is traditionally presented to the winner of the NAIDOC Week poster competition during the National NAIDOC Awards. This presentation did not go ahead in 2020 due to the event's cancellation.
Tyrown's artwork, 'Shape of Land' was inspired by the 2020 NAIDOC Week theme, Always Was, Always Will Be. The artwork depicts the Rainbow Serpent coming out of the Dreamtime to create this country and how we are strongly connected to it.

The winner of the 2021 National NAIDOC Week poster competition will be announced shortly.
