Greenery | A Public Competition

Trove Canberra Greenery A Public Competition for Design Canberra Festival

Greenery | A Public Competition, part of DESIGN Canberra Festival 2017

Be part of the Design Canberra Festival and flex your creative muscles by submitting a creation of your making inspired by "Greenery", the Pantone 2017 colour of the year. Be literal and use the colour theme or try something different with a play on words - the choice is yours.

Paint a picture, create a sculpture from metal, clay or playdough. Perhaps construct jewellery or beadwork, work with papier-mâché, or simply knit, crochet or embroider your way to glory. There is a wide range of mediums out there for you to experiment with. We can’t wait to see the results. Prizes will also be won by a member of the public who participates in voting in-store for a winner and by someone who shares the event on social media.

Prize Categories

There are two categories for submissions:
Under 16 - for young people under 16
Open - for people 16 years and over

A Public Voter prize will be awarded to a randomly selected voter. Participate in the vote for a chance to win.

A Social Media prize will be awarded to a randomly selected Facebook or Instagram post. For a chance to win, post a photo of one or more of the competition entries and tag your post with #TroveCanberraGreenery AND #DesignCanberra.
