2021 NAIDOC Ball Design Competition

Football West today launches the 2021 NAIDOC Ball Design Competition.

We have teamed up with our partner the Insurance Commission of Western Australia to invite the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community to create a design which will be printed on to footballs and distributed to clubs across the State.

As well as the winning design, the footballs will carry the Insurance Commission’s Belt Up road safety message.

The winning artist will receive a $1,000 sports equipment voucher and a set of 10 footballs carrying the winning design.

Earlier this year Kimberley artist Hozaus Claire won our first NAIDOC Ball Design Competition. His design and the Belt Up message can be seen above.

On Tuesday, Sport and Recreation Minister Mick Murray kindly joined Insurance Commission of WA Chief Executive Rod Whithear and Football West CEO James Curtis to launch the metro distribution of the balls at Beedawong Meeting Place in Kings Park.

Also present were ICWA Executive Assistant Rebecca Hawkins, ICWA Commission Secretary Kane Blackman, Go Cultural Aboriginal Tours & Experiences owner/operator and competition judge Walter McGuire, Koya Aboriginal Corporation community engagement Tomzarni Dann and co-ordinator Cheryl Thomas, WA Police Senior Constable Nick Mason-Walshall, Swan United defender Alyssa Wallwork and Armadale Soccer Club coach Anton Coates.
