NAIDOC poster competition winner announced

  • 2 May 2018

    Congratulations to Bigambul woman Cheryl Moggs for her winning entry in the 2018 National NAIDOC Poster Competition.
    There were more than 190 entries in this year’s competition, making it very difficult for the Committee to choose just one winner.

    Cheryl said 'the artwork is a personal thank you to all our women, across all nations. It’s also to educate people on the impacts of history.'
    Ms Moggs’ artwork portrays the courage and resilience of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women. The painting has three sections with image overlays depicting stories. Uniting as one; Across the stars (skies), connected to our lands and waterways, keeping our dreaming stories, songlines, language, knowledge and future strong for all First Nations and generations to come.
    A self-taught artist, Ms Moggs is influenced by challenging western culture ideologies, mapping culture and place, constructing identities and connections.
