Budding illustrators aged 5 to 12 years old can have their best creations showcased during Sydney Lunar Festival 2025

We’re looking for vibrant, colourful drawings that:

  • celebrate the Lunar New Year
  • are highly imaginative
  • portray performance, anything from dancing to juggling or singing
  • include a red envelope or lantern
  • are happy, friendly, smiling, laughing or cheeky
  • look strong and bold

You can send us up to 3 different drawings to consider.

Find out more and apply online by midnight on 16 June.

How to submit your drawings

  • Complete the entry form and attach a photo of each drawing. A smartphone photo is fine.
  • Keep the original drawings in a safe place. Selected drawings may need to be posted to us.
  • Make sure you read the terms and conditions before submitting your drawings.

Drawing requirements

  • The snake drawing must be drawn in portrait orientation. Use A3 paper and make your drawing as large as possible on the page.
  • Submissions can be drawn using any materials including pencils, paint, crayons, or in digital format, for example, Adobe Illustrator.
  • Do not add any background colour or details to your artwork – the snake needs to be the feature of your artwork.

Something to consider

The selected snake drawings will be included in Sydney Lunar Festival 2025 as outdoor street decals or posters. Your snake drawing needs to stand out and be recognisable from a distance.
