A NEW competition will give people the chance to design memorabilia for Canberra’s Centenary in 2013.
Centenary of Canberra – a legacy of good design will shortlist 10 finalists, who will each receive $1000 to develop their design concept into a prototype. From these 10 finalists, four winners will be selected. Each of the winners will receive $10,000 for the production costs of the initial run of the memorabilia object.
Craft ACT: Craft and Design Centre executive director Avi Amesbury says: “The Canberra region has a vibrant and innovative community of craft practitioners and designer makers with a rich history of contribution to the ACT and the nation. This is an exciting project calling on local practitioners to create memorabilia objects that commemorate the Centenary of Canberra and celebrate 100 years of Canberra as Australia’s national capital.”
The competition is open to all Canberra and local region residents and closes on Friday, December 2.
Four information sessions will be held throughout Canberra during September and early October 2011.
