Help a local girl win some stuff

By 13 November 2013 10

VOTE!

Sally Witchalls is in year 8 at Canberra High School and she designed that stamp. It’s pretty clever and super rad.

That’s her job done, now it’s time for your job.

Step 1: Go here https://polldaddy.com/poll/7521942/.

Step 2: Vote for Sally’s stamp so she wins the stamp making competition.

Come on, you want Sally/Canberra to win right? You don’t want someone from Werribee winning do you?

Have you been to Werribee? I used to live there, it’s a dreadful place.

Trust me, Canberra is way better.

Minister for Education and Training Joy Burch today congratulated Sally Witchalls on being one of five finalists for the Australia Post stamp competition.

“I congratulate Sally as the only ACT finalist for this competition. It is a wonderful achievement to have reached the top five from across Australia,” Ms Burch said. “This is an opportunity for Sally, but also the ACT, to be represented nationally through this competition.”

Australia Post invited students from years 7 to 12 from around the country to showcase their creative skills by designing a 60 cent stamp. The commemorative stamp will be released in conjunction with the G20 Summit in 2014.

The winning design from the five finalists is selected by popular vote from the public.

This is the second design accolade for Sally Witchalls in the past 12 months. Earlier in the year Sally won the Canberra Milk ‘Art In Butt Out’ competition. The design for that artwork appeared on 60,000 milk cartons during September this year.

What, you don’t like the Paterson College entry that suggests the G20 summit is going to tear the country apart? Or the one from Asquith Girls High School that appears to have left the USA out of the G20 but does have a enormous NZ?

I quite like all those desings. Maybe not the Werribee one so much.
The Queensland one does a good job of reminding us how design was done in 1960, (except it should really have “12s” on it instead of “60c” to be totally in character).
The WA one reminds us what the 80s looked like.
The Victorian one reminds me how $#@! the weather is down there.

No worries, vote for the local girl.

OK, OK, I meant 5′ not 12s

What’s the Tassie? Is that some kind of punctuation mark?

The Tassie is just to show that the shape is Australia and it pulls the whole design together (I HOPE!!!)
Also just thought I’d let you all know that there is no named prize for this competition other than for the recognition and the stamp being published- which would be amazing, if I have a chance of winning :)
