Unlimited possibilities of art for youth week

YOUNG Queensland artists are being encouraged to design an artwork for Queensland Youth Week 2019.

The State Government has extended the artwork competition closing date to January 25.

Youth Minister Di Farmer said the design theme, Unlimited, summed up who young Queenslanders were.

"We're looking for entries that capture that idea of unlimited potential, of looking to the future and seeing limitless possibilities,” she said.

"Whether you're still at school, or a young person in the workforce, we want you to get creative and show us what you can do.”

The winner will have their artwork featured as the creative for QYW 2019 along with a $500 Visa card and a Sony HX350 compact camera with 50x optical zoom, valued at $499.

Two runners-up will each receive a $100 JB Hi-Fi gift voucher.

Young Queenslanders aged 13 to 25 can enter the competition via the Youth eHub.

QYW 2019 will run from April 3-14, after being extended to allow high schools to join the celebrations during the last few days of term.
