This year's NAIDOC theme is 'We value the vision: Yirrkala Bark Petitions 1963.' The theme proudly celebrates the 50th anniversary of the presentation of the Yirrkala Bark Petitions to Federal Parliament.
The National NAIDOC Poster Competition is now open for entries. The competition is an opportunity for talented Indigenous artists to have their artwork, based on the theme, showcased across Australia as part of NAIDOC celebrations.
Entries close Friday 29 March 2013.
Nominations for the annual NAIDOC Awards are also now open. These awards recognise the outstanding contributions Indigenous Australians make to improve the lives of Indigenous people in their communities and beyond; the exceptional role they've undertaken to promote Indigenous issues in the wider community; or the excellence they've shown in their chosen field.
NAIDOC encourages Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders to nominate a community member who deserves to be recognised for their contribution.
Nominations close on Friday 26 April 2013.
