In partnership with The Design Files, Australia’s most popular design blog,

we are thrilled to present the inaugural TDF Kids Art Awards.


“As a company founded in Melbourne, Australia is our home. Our community. Our family. Australians have shown remarkable resilience as they endured the events of the past year, and now so many in NSW and QLD are being truly tested once again. We wanted to take this opportunity to support the community in a different way, with an unexpected initiative that we hope delivers some joy and wonder!”

2021 Theme ‘Australia’

After last year, it’s safe to say we’ve all reflected on Australia’s unique place in the world, and felt a new appreciation for the country we call home. 

To capture this theme, we’re asking kids – what does Australia look like, feel like and mean to you?

From holidays at the beach, to a koala snoozing in a gum tree, Sydney’s iconic Opera House, Uluru in the central desert, a game of backyard cricket, footy at the MCG, or perhaps just a plate of Vegemite on toast for breakfast!

We’re calling on all Aussie kids to show us their Australia! 


5 x winners in each category will receive $2,000 each thanks to Honan, plus their winning artwork on a customised pencil case thanks to Crumb Kids – and all the accolades!

15 runners up (3 in each age group) will receive their winning design on a customised pencil case thanks to Crumb Kids.

Entries are open from now until Sunday April 18th 2021.
