Entries Open for the NSW Youth Week 2019 Design Competition

Calling all young people in New South Wales aged between 12 – 24! Entries are now open for the NSW Youth Week 2019 Design Competition.

To celebrate NSW Youth Week this year, the Office of the Advocate for Children and Young People (ACYP) are holding a Design Competition for young people aged between 12 and 24 years of age in New South Wales.

Young people are encouraged to enter a drawing, painting, photograph or digital illustration, with a winning design to be printed on a custom pair of shoe slides. It is not about being a good artist, it’s about young people showing what inspires them.

The winner will receive an award, as well as shoe slides for themselves, their family and friends at the NSW Youth Week Forum at NSW Parliament House on Monday 8 April 2019. Selected entries will also be displayed on the official Youth Week website and feature in the ACYP’s upcoming events.

This year’s NSW Youth Week runs from 10 – 18 April. The 2019 theme is: Coming together to Connect, Share, Speak Out, and Celebrate and was decided by the NSW Youth Advisory Council 2018.

Beginning in 1989 as a NSW Government initiative, Youth Week is organised by young people, for young people, to celebrate, share their ideas and talents, and have their voices heard on issues of concern. Since 2000, it has been extended to cover all states and territories in Australia, becoming National Youth Week. It is jointly supported by the Australian Government, State and Territory Governments and Local Government.

Entries close Sunday 17 March 2019.
