Opportunity for Indigenous artists to leave mark on Maroons
The Queensland Rugby League is pleased to announce a new program for aspiring artists to contribute to the famed Maroons brand.
The launch of the program follows the successful introduction of the Queensland Maroons Indigenous training jersey this year.
The 2018 jersey, designed by renowned artists Jyi Lawton and Ronald Henry-Monaei, was proudly worn by Queensland players during several training sessions throughout the Holden State of Origin series.
And now other talented artists can strive to replicate the achievements of Jyi and Ronald by submitting their own artwork for the team's future range of apparel.
QRL staff have worked closely with Indigenous Advisory Committee Chairman Edward Monaei to create the new program.

Artists must be of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander descent to be eligible for the program.
Queensland's Origin squad features numerous players who are leaders in the Indigenous community, including captain Greg Inglis.
Inglis was thrilled to launch the inaugural Indigenous jersey in May this year at Queen Street Mall, where he was joined by Dane Gagai and Will Chambers on stage.
