Youth Week 2021 poster submissions

We were super lucky to have received 4 awesome designs that we think reflect our Youth Week 2021 theme: “We’re Stronger Together!” Thanks to our friends at CCS Disability Action for their support!

We are excited to announce that the winning design for the 2021 Youth Week Poster is:

Eleanor & Annabel Hurton (24) – Christchurch

The text Youth Week, "We're Stronger Together", "He waka eke noa" and the Youth Week Dates are written at the top of the poster.
The image is a silhouette head and shoulders in front of a shaded blue yellow green circle. Inside the head and shoulders are cartoon people of diverse appearance and ability. The  Youth Week, Ara Taiohi and CCS Disability Action logos are shown at the bottom.


“As identical twins, we have always felt stronger together so we instantly connected with the 2021 Youth Week theme. For our poster we really embraced the fact that young people in Aotearoa are all in this together – that we can achieve more, bloom brighter and make this country a better place for all of us when we work together.
However, we also wanted to acknowledge the beautiful diversity we have in this country by emphasising that while we are stronger together, it is crucial that we embrace and celebrate our differences and address the unique needs, struggles, identities, rights and experiences of every young person.”


Our thanks to all designers that submitted the following posters:
