Kangaroo Mascot Contest Announcement

We are going to have a kangaroo/joey mascot to use to celebrate the 10th Annual Kangaroo Care Day

OBJECTIVE: We are looking for designs of a kangaroos/joeys to be our mascot for Kangaroo Care Day. 

CONTEST: submit your cute, imperfect, colorful, innovative illustrations of a kangaroo/joey in a reading pose (see example below)

USE: we will be printing them in cards, posters, banners, using them in the website, educational materials etc, and distribute globally for free to celebrate Kangaroo Care Day.


  • We accept concepts, drafts, or full design, color of kangaroo/joey design(s)
  • Submit your own design of one kangaroo/baby pose reading.  Knowing that, about 10-15 different poses will be required from the winner design.
  • Vibrant colors are preferred, avoid orange body or pastel blue/pink
  • Expressive face (could it be shown excited, scared, sad, sleeping, calm?)
  • Also 3 dimensional as it will be shown in poses from the front, side, and sometimes from the back. 
  • Must have Kangaroo and the baby/joey in every design. 
  • Use minimalistic backgrounds if you think it will help your design.
  • Avoid static, cold, unexpressive, symmetric designs.
  • Cannot copy or resemble existing kangaroo clipart - we are not looking for cartoons or cliparts but for illustration. 
  • Want it doing human-like activities, imperfect, uplifting design is preferred.
    SUBMIT before October 30,  2020. Send your design to with your name, phone number, your vision, and anything that can help us evaluate the design.

      WINNERS: We will select 3 finalists who will have the opportunity to submit 1-2 more designs doing different activities.  From those we will select the winner and request the development of 10-15 different poses.

      PRIZES: We will acknowledge the winners in the website, and provide a budget for the additional development of the different poses. 

      Fine Print:

      • It must be original design (not copied)
      • The copyright/commercial must be released to Kangaroo Care Day
      • Void where prohibited


      we found this kangaroo/joey in the style we like but it is  copyrighted, but it has a lot of the elements we are looking for. Design away!
