To get the message out that Australia should not tolerate violence against women, the White Ribbon Day committee is seeking participation from local art and design students.

White Ribbon Day (November 25) is an international campaign that calls for people to take an oath that they will never commit, excuse or remain silent about violence against women. A white ribbon or wristband is the visual symbol of their commitment.

This year the local White Ribbon Day Committee wants two banners—designed by local students—to be carried during the community walk in November.

The creators of the winning banners will be given a $100 voucher from the store of their choice. Banners can be any media but must be three metres by one metre with a 100mm sleeve at the top and bottom. Applications close Friday 30 June.
