If you’re a local artist with a talent for award design, a wonderful opportunity is now available to design the prestigious 2018 Sunshine Coast Australia Day Awards trophy.

Community Portfolio Councillor Jenny McKay said the Sunshine Coast Australia Day Awards celebrated the achievement and contribution of individuals and community organisations in our region.

“In 2018, we will celebrate the Sunshine Coast Australia Day Awards 10th anniversary,” Cr McKay said.

“Each year we are honoured to present our Australia Day Award recipients with a unique trophy to recognise their achievements and outstanding contribution to the community.

“Over the past five years, our talented local artists have created trophies that are works of art and which we know will be treasured by the Australia Day Award recipients for a lifetime.”

Now is the time for local artists who are interested in designing the award trophy for the 2018 Australia Day Awards to submit a design concept.

Artists wishing to apply can find design brief details on council’s website, and are asked to email the proposed 2018 Australia Day Award design concept, as well as a production timeline and cost estimates for eight trophies to events@sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au by Monday, September 11, 2017.

Entries will be judged by an industry panel. Please note, only shortlisted applicants will be contacted. The successful artist will be notified in early October.

Nominations for the 2018 Sunshine Coast Australia Day Awards will open on Tuesday, September 12 and close on Monday, December 4, 2017.
