Harry Alfred Pitt, a Torres Strait Islander is the winner of this years’ National NAIDOC Poster competition. The theme for 2014 is Serving Country: Centenary & Beyond. Mr Pitt’s entry captured the essence of the theme in a clever and attractive way.
This year’s NAIDOC theme honours all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men and women who have fought in defence of country.
From our warriors in the Frontier Wars to our warriors who have served with honour and pride in Australia’s military conflicts and engagements across the globe.
Mr Pitt’s concept for the poster depicts three brothers with their land behind them and the horizon before them. Their Elders are reflected in the water, giving the brothers the strength to overcome the challenges that may lie over the horizon.
