Skytrans Uniform Competition

Cairns Indigenous Art Fair (CIAF) and Skytrans launched a Queensland wide competition in their search for an authentic Indigenous artwork that will feature prominently in the airlines’ new corporate uniform.

Rockhampton artist Annie Abednego Gela’s artwork entitled, LAK PARU KWINZLAN (The Face of Queensland) was selected by judges CIAF Artistic Director Janina Harding and Skytrans CEO Michael Thinee from among 27 entries. Ms Abednego Gela’s artwork will be unveiled in a capsule collection that is presented as part of this year’s CIAF fashion performance at Tanks Arts Centre. Added to this, the winning and highly commended art works will be on display at the Art Fair in Shed 3 of Cairns Cruise Liner Terminal. Skytrans’ Uniform Design Art Prize rewards the winning artist an acquisitive prize of $4000 cash (plus licencing fee) as well as return flights to attend CIAF’s 10th anniversary event opening night event.
