Lani Balzan is the artist behind the winning submission of the 2016 NAIDOC poster. Songlines: The Living Narrative of our Nation is the theme for this year.

Ms Balzan is a Wiradjuri Aboriginal woman from New South Wales, and she has chosen to name her artwork ‘Songlines Tie All Aboriginal People Together’. She was awarded a $5000 cash prize.

100 entries were made to the competition, but NAIDOC organisers unanimously decided on Ms Balzan’s work.

The poster will be distributed across the country to promote NAIDOC Week, which runs from 3-10 July.

A digital copy of the poster can be downloaded here, and you can visit the official NAIDOC website for more information about this year’s theme.
