Steps to enter

1. Registration

Register and pay the $40 entry (+booking fee) for your ARTDECKO pack (consisting of a skate deck, some Posca Pens, an ARTDECKO t-shirt and access to online resources).

Each entrant must complete a separate entry form (however payment for siblings can be made in the one transaction).

Registration has now closed.

2. Delivery and design

From then on, let your imagination take over. However, designs must be suitable for viewing by all age groups and non-discriminatory (the decision of appropriateness is final and not the subject of appeal).
