The National NAIDOC Committee is delighted to once again invite Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists to submit their artwork to the 2023 National NAIDOC Week Poster Competition. All artwork submitted must reflect the 2023 National NAIDOC Week Theme - For Our Elders.
The Committee is also happy to announce that this year, for the first time, group entries will be eligible for the poster competition.
The National NAIDOC Week Poster Competition represents a unique opportunity for talented Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists aged 16 years and over to have their work recognised both nationally and internationally.
The National NAIDOC Poster competition is an iconic feature of National NAIDOC Week and has a rich and significant history beginning in 1967 when the National Aboriginal and Islander Day Observance Committee (NAIDOC) first began producing posters. NAIDOC posters have been exhibited by various national cultural institutions such as the National Museum of Australia and reflect not only the many significant social changes that have occurred since 1967 but also the evolution of art over the last 54 years.
The winning artist will receive a $10,000 cash price (tax free) and their artwork will be used as the official 2023 National NAIDOC Week Poster. In previous years, the winning artwork has been used to wrap public transport, as the backdrop for a current affairs program, and was even on display at Expo 2020 in Dubai! Additionally, the winning artist (or group of artist) will receive a ticket for themselves and one guest to the National NAIDOC Awards ceremony.
