If you have talent, flaunt it. And that’s exactly what the inaugural Stabilo Awards are all about. Featuring illustrations from over 200 extremely talented entrants, the awards will be a platform to showcase some incredible works. 

These artworks will have been completed using Stabilo Point 68 and Point 88 pencils and will be centred around the theme ‘Free Your True Colours.’

The winner will be jetting off to Paris with a friend to visit Le Louvre (hashtage jealous) and will also feature on STABILO’s website and across their social media channels.

The awards are set to take place at the Whitehouse Institute of Design’s state-of-the-art exhibition space, which is worth visiting just for the sweeping city views.

Entry to the event is free and the top 100 entrants will be featured. There’s also an opportunity to purchase the artwork with the proceeds going to ANZGOG. ANZGOG is the leading group for gynaecological clinical trials in Australia and New Zealand, so your purchase will be going to a very worthy cause.

It's all happening on July 19 at 2:00 pm at the Whitehouse Institute of Design’s Surry Hills campus.
