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.
