This year we have commissioned two brilliant illustrators to create the artwork for our annual NAIDOC Week colouring competition: Angela Ramirez, who illustrated The Little Corroborree Frog, and Brenton McKenna, the graphic novelist who wrote and illustrated the Ubby’s Underdogs trilogy.

The colouring sheets are designed to be used as a NAIDOC Week activity, and also to accompany the full units of work we have published for The Little Corroboree Frog and the first two graphic novels in the Ubby’s Underdogs series (The Legend of the Dragon Phoenix and Heroes’ Beginnings).

What is the prize?

A student in each of three age groups will receive a set of books, and their school library will receive the equivalent set.

Who can enter?

The competition is open to students in primary and secondary school to Year 10. There are two distinct colouring sheets, one for primary and one for secondary, but judging will take place in three categories:

  1. Foundation to Year 3 (download the primary colouring sheet)
  2. Year 4 to Year 6 (download the primary colouring sheet)
  3. Year 7 to Year 10 (download the secondary colouring sheet)
