Latest: CHOGM 2011 Student Postcard CompetitionFebruary 23rd, 2011
Do you want to share your creativity with Commonwealth leaders from around the globe?
Leaders and delegates from around the Commonwealth will visit Perth, Western Australia from 28-30 October 2011 for the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM).
This will be the biggest international event to be held in Perth for many years and a significant event for Australia as host country.
To help mark this important occasion the CHOGM 2011 Taskforce is running a CHOGM 2011 Student Postcard Competition and inviting Australian primary and secondary school students to share their artistic thoughts with the wider Commonwealth community.
School students are invited to create a printed artwork which depicts or represents one of the following categories:
- Primary School: Commonwealth in colour
- Secondary School: Working towards a common wealth
From drawings, paintings and collage to finger painting, printed mixed media, and photographs. As long as it can be printed it can be entered.
A judging panel will select 20 entries from all of those received to be shortlisted and profiled on this website before the online public is invited to view and vote.
The four (4) shortlisted entries to receive the most online votes will be used as official CHOGM 2011 postcards! The winning artworks will appear on the front of each postcard and the name and details of the winning entrant on the back.
Postcards will be given to every CHOGM 2011 attendee and distributed widely throughout Perth, Western Australia and online to the world!
Entries will be open from 5 November 2010 until 1 April 2011.
We look forward to receiving your entry!
