My Australian Christmas Card Exhibition 2020 - In this together
Australian Consulate-General, Hong Kong
- Wed 16-12-2020 to Wed 30-12-2020
Every year, students in Hong Kong are encouraged to participate in a theme-based Christmas card design competition hosted by the Australian Consulate-General. This year's theme is “In this together”.
The purpose of this competition is to encourage young artists to start their own cultural exploration of how they might celebrate Christmas in an Australian summer. 2020 is a year unlike any other. While Australia celebrates Christmas differently compared to northern hemisphere locations like Hong Kong (for example outdoors at a BBQ, at a beach or camping), this year we have much more in common as we share similar challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Christmas is a time for family and friends to get together. COVID-19 may set us apart or make it harder for us to meet face-to-face. But it is being apart that can help bring us together.
Australia and Hong Kong are great friends and partners. The competition also encourages students to think about the friendship between Australia and Hong Kong during the festive period, and the spirit of togetherness as we face the future hand-in-hand.
Students entered in one of four categories: Junior Primary (primary 1 to 3); Senior Primary (primary 4 to 6); Junior Secondary (secondary 1 to 3); and Senior Secondary (secondary 4 to 6).
Four winning designs are used as the official Christmas greetings of the Australian Consulate-General Hong Kong, while one is selected as the Consul-General’s personal Christmas greeting card.
