National colouring-in competition


The Australian Wildlife Society colouring-in competition is designed to inspire the younger generation to learn about Australia's native wildlife via visual art and creativity.  We hope that the experience provides participants with the opportunity to explore and develop a deeper understanding of environmental and wildlife-related issues.

There will be one first, second and third place winner in each state and territory of Australia.  The first place finalist in each state and territory will go into a draw to have their artwork published in the Society’s magazine Australian Wildlife.  All first place winners will receive an annual family membership, valued at $70.00, and a certificate of congratulations.  Their artwork will be published in the Society’s e-newsletter and social media platforms.  Second and third place winners will receive a certificate of congratulations and their artwork will be published in the e-newsletter and social media platforms.
