The Toyota Cowboys continue to celebrate the strong Indigenous culture of North Queensland, inviting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists to submit artwork to feature on the official 2019 Indigenous Cowboys playing and supporter jersey.
Entry is open to artists aged 15 years and over, with designs to reflect North Queensland Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures, and the values of the Cowboys club – Unity, Courage, Committed and Integrity.
The competition, run by the North Queensland Toyota Cowboys, is a unique opportunity for the winning artist to showcase their design and heritage on the National Rugby League stage.
Cowboys general manager community, Fiona Pelling, said the competition is something the club is proud to host, giving the Indigenous community an opportunity to feel even more connected to the team.
“We work closely with the Indigenous community on a number of our existing programs, so the design competition is just another way for us to collaborate and help showcase their culture to all of Australia,” Ms Pelling said.
The winner will receive a cash prize of $2,500, four 2019 Platinum Star memberships with season parking and a 2019 Indigenous jersey featuring their design!
Entries comprising artwork, design story and a signed, completed entry form will be accepted by email, in person or by post until 5pm, Friday 2 March (no late entries considered), with a limit of one entry per person.
