A P P L I C A T I O N S - Australia

Welcome yet again to another exciting year of HEX's Next Top Graphic Designer! This year, we're going on a trip in our favorite rocket ship around the world. We are in search of HEX's top graphic designers to compete in this year's competition. Do you have what it takes to take on the challenges this year? Are you prepared to test your creativity, skills and think outside the box? We hope so because this isn't going to be easy.

Anyone on HEX who would like to participate is welcome to, given that they were not coordinators of any portion of this event nor are a past winner. Any program or style is welcome - though we do recommend that the ability to use different fonts, textures, and other resources be at the top of your mind when applying. Only the top 28 applicants will make the final cut to compete for the glorious win as HEX's Next Top Graphic Designer 2017!


M E C H A N I C S

First stop, Australia! A land known for its vibrant and slightly dangerous wildlife. Influenced by various cultures and admired for their iconic cityscapes. It is home to the Great Barrier Reef and the Outback. There is no better place to start and before you ask: No, we will not be going to P. Sherman, 42 Wallaby Way, Sydney.

It's been a couple years now and I think I've improved considerably since then, but I'm still scared. Should I or shouldn't I?

Everyone should definitely give it a try It'll be a fun experience just trying out the application pieces And you'll only improve if you give yourself challenges, and I know I was always rubbish at coming up with ideas for myself to do things, so having challenges are definitely easy prompts to get those creative juices flowing and try out new things...

And I'm rambling and talking in circles a bit more than normal so I think I shall head off to bed 😂

I have this question too, also, the 2nd section which requires up to three pieces, can that be anything we want, or does it have to be Australian themed too?

Yep it can be any award as long as it fits the requirements in terms of size and the theme and such.

The additional work does not have to be Australian themed, show us some of your best work in general, but you are free to make new pieces. We want to see your strengths and your range

Yep awards like Heir of Slytherin, or like the Ultimate Ravenclaw (that's... that's y'alls title right? XD) Basically just an award for that.

Or even like "Artist of the Month" like we do here in A&G
