Poster Creation

The competition has been extended and entries now close on 31 January 2022.

Create a poster that has a connection to whānau and tamariki in Aotearoa. This could encompass culture, nature, aroha, maunga, home, community and how we support our whānau who experience mental health and addiction concerns.

Entries are open to all (see link below).  

Entries require a short text with the whakaaro (thoughts and background) to provide context for your poster.
Here are some ideas for your poster, although we encourage you to develop your own.

  • Supporting whānau
  • Empower our tamariki
  • We are whānau
  • Whānau kōrero
  • Connecting with your tamariki
  • Ko e tau fanau ko e uho mo e alito he magafaoa
    Children are the centre and the pupil of the families' eyes
  • Koe fanau koe hakau ‘oe ‘aho ni ka koe fonua ia ‘oe kaha’u
    Our children are the reef of today but the island of tomorrow
