Submissions due: Midnight, Saturday 30 June 2018
The Youth Reference Group is looking for design submissions from young creatives, to develop a badge or series of badges for sale in the Gallery Shop. To enter a submission, you need only be living in Australia and between 13 - 30 years of age.
There is no set theme for the badge - however it should promote or reference Newcastle Art Gallery in some way. Designs will be reviewed by the Youth Reference Group and the top designs will be developed into embroidered badges and sold in the Newcastle Art Gallery Shop.
This project is designed so the end product will promote Newcastle Art Gallery to a younger audience, but the call-out for submissions will also provide professional experiences and opportunities for young people.
Newcastle Art Gallery will support the successful designer or designers by covering all costs associated with manufacturing the embroidered badges, and the designers will receive a commission for each unit sold, plus a bunch of badges to place in their portfolio, add to their CV, or just to give to friends and family.
