Eligibility

  • Live or have lived in Moree
  • All entries are to have an accompanying storyline

Entries are currently being taken for the competition up until 4pm on Monday, 2nd November 2020 . Entries can be submitted to the Reynolds and Fogarty depot at 5-7 Greenbah Road (opposite Moree Golf Course).

The Moree On Demand service has done a lot of reconciliation in the last two years and so the competition is all about reconciliation and community connection and togetherness.

The competition is open to everyone to enter, as long as you live in Moree or have lived in Moree and the artwork has a storyline relating to reconciliation.

You don’t necessarily have to be Indigenous, and the artwork doesn’t have to be a painting.

All art forms are welcome, including painting, weaving, textiles, carving, pottery, sculpture and photography.

The artwork could be a wood carving, boomerangs, or photographs or things focusing on reconciliation. It must have a storyline, because we get so many visitors to town, and they will ask what the story of the artwork is.

Winners in each category will be contacted by phone and announced via our Facebook page on Monday 9th November 2020.

The judging will take place after competition closes. The judges’ decision will be final and no correspondence will be entered into.

The entries will be displayed at the Dhiiyaan Aboriginal Centre during NAIDOC Week, starting Monday, November 9 when the winners are announced ahead of the new bus’ launch on November 30.
