Prizes up for grabs for young Queensland artists

The Palaszczuk Government is calling on young Queensland artists to design the artwork for Queensland Youth Week 2019, following an extension to the QYW artwork competition closing date.

Youth Minister Di Farmer said competition entrants now had until 25 January to submit their design around the 2019 theme — Unlimited.

“The theme really sums up who young Queenslanders are, and the value young people bring to our communities,” Ms Farmer said.

“We’re looking for entries that capture that idea of unlimited potential, of looking to the future and seeing limitless possibilities.

“Whether you’re still at school, or a young person in the workforce, we want you to get creative and show us what you can do.”

The winner will have their artwork featured as the creative for QYW 2019 along with a $500 Visa card and a Sony HX350 compact camera with 50x optical zoom (valued at $499).

Two runners-up will each receive a $100 JB Hi-Fi gift voucher.

Young Queenslanders aged 13 to 25 can find out details and enter the competition via the Youth eHub at

The competition closes on Friday, 25 January 2019.

QYW 2019 will run from 3 to 14 April, after being extended to allow high schools to join the celebrations during the last few days of term.
