Challenge themes for 2017

http://illo52weeks.blogspot.com.au/2016/12/challenge-themes-for-2017.html 

Who would have thought that we would be here yet again, announcing a list of inspiration themes for 2017!

Founded by Tania McCartney in January 2014, the purpose of the Challenge was to reconnect Tania with her creativity that had been laying dormant for many years. We soon discovered, it wasn't just Tania who benefited from this exciting idea, she in fact inspired and brought together an entire creative community who also fell back in love with art.

Since the beginning of the Challenge, we have celebrated the many success stories from our Challenge members, both personal and professional and it is very exciting to see it continue again in 2017.

Of course like every new year of the Challenge, it brings with it a new logo.....

Each year we have selected a new logo designed by members who entered our 'Logo Competition', but this time, we thought it would be pretty special if the 2017 Challenge logo was designed by Tania herself,  and what a smashing job she has done!! I just LOVE Tania's eye for design, placement and fonts. The logo range will be uploaded on 1 January 2017.


It is with GREAT DELIGHT that we share the themes that are set for 2017.... may you all experience another 12 months of creativity and boundary-pushing!

We can't wait to see what pieces of art you all create!
