Entries for 2019 have now closed.

THEME: Flowers of war
Consider the many ways that people reflect and the use of floral emblems as symbols of remembrance. The Shrine’s exhibition Flowers of war is a great source of inspiration. Cornflowers, mountain daisies and violets are all represented in the large-scale commemorative wreath, on display in the East Gallery. An interactive screen in the gallery offers information about each flower or plant.We are looking for original entries that are eye-catching, colourful (although not fluorescent colours), imaginative and demonstrate a good understanding of the theme. Designs must be no larger than A3 and portrait orientation.


In a presentation following the State Remembrance Day service, Grade 6 student Piper Kelly, representing Cana Catholic Primary, was announced as the winner. View a gallery of the highly commended and commended finalist entries.


Artists statement: The Australian Medical Corps was formed on 1st of July 1902. It was formed by combining the medical services of the armed forces of the various Australian colonies that have been in existence prior to federation. They had their origins in the medical structures of the British forces that have deployed to Australia during the late
18th and 19th centuries. The star of life is a cross symbol used by the medical services.
