The Competition

Colour can mean inherently different things to different people – from an eruption of bright vibrant shades to deeper tones that emote a darkness or mood.

Faber-Castell have long been purveyors of artistic expression – with 259 years of experience to call on, we’re focused on inspiring Australian artists, both amateurs and professionals alike, to showcase the colours of the world around you.

#Colour4life is about harnessing the power of colour for self-expression and aims to become a forum where participating artists can get inspired by each other and by our ambassador artists.

With three major prizes up for grabs, as well as exposure on our social media platforms and website, the competition is a chance to showcase what colour means for you and win the best tools of the trade available to continue your artistic journey.
