It's a great honour and privilege to officially announce the finalists and major prize winner of the MAX 2015 Indigenous Art Calendar Competition. The competition was open to all forms of indigenous artwork, and aimed to celebrate the diversity and tradition of Indigenous Australian artwork in a range of mediums.

The major prize was awarded to Townsville artist, Barbara Leftwich, for her entry titled ‘Spirit Eagle Dreaming’. Barbara’s entry depicts her spirit in the form of a beautiful wedge-tailed eagle flying over the country. 


The major prize winner - 'Spirit Eagle Dreaming' by Barbara Leftwich.

“The wedge-tailed eagle is painted white, which depicts its powerful spiritual representation,” said Ms Leftwich .

“It represents me soaring over my country with a bird’s eye view of where I grew up and was taught by my elders about how to respect the land and how to survive off the land. It’s based on my memories and experiences as a child growing up with my Uncle and Aunty on the Mowbray River and surrounding valley.”


MAX Employment Managing Director, Deborah Homewood said Barbara’s strong attention to detail, use of textures, and earthy colour palette made the entry a stand out.

“The artwork, coupled with the artist statement show a deep connection to the land and experiences growing up,”
said Ms Homewood.



In recognition of her efforts staff at MAX Employment Townsville presented Ms Leftwich with an Apple MacBook Air Laptop. 

We were overwhelmed by the high calibre of entries and would like to extend our congratulations to all entrants.
