November / TAFE SA / 2017 World Skills Regional Graphic Design Technology Competition

TAFE SA will be hosting the 2017 World Skills Regional Graphic Design Technology Competition on 2nd November 2017 at the AC Arts Campus. Every two years, more than 500 Regional Competitions are held in 35 regions across Australia. They test the skills and knowledge of 4000+ apprentices, trainees and students, who have the chance to win gold, silver and bronze medals and go on to compete at a national level. The Graphic Design Technology Competition sees students applying their graphic design skills and knowledge to a design brief provided on the day of the competition and provides students with an opportunity to learn how to think and work creatively in an intensive environment. Food and refreshments are supplied during the competition.

The 2015 Graphic Design Technology Regional World Skills Event – held on 11 September 2015 at TAFE SA saw three TAFE SA students take out the Gold, Silver and Bronze. Mikalya Ingham was selected to represent Australia in the National World Skills Australia Competition that was held at the Melbourne Showgrounds on 6th October 2016. More than 500 young men and women aged 16-24 years, from around Australia, contended for the gold medal in their respective skills category over three days of rigorous competition. Mikayla took out the Bronze prize!
