Introducing PiCS Golden Frog Awards 2017. 

In recognition of the fantastic displays that are created and designed in Libraries all over Australia and New Zealand, and the launch of Peta Gill’s High Vis Your Library, we have created the Golden Frog Awards.

Q. How do I enter?

To enter simply attend Peta Gill’s High Vis Your Library Workshop in either Wellington, Christchurch, Melbourne or Sydney and using principles of design, new skills, tips and tricks come up with an AWESOME display that wows your Library visitors and pleases the judges. 

Take some pics and tweet to #highvisyourlibrary including your handle and your Library’s Twitter handle.

Q. What do I win?

A giant chocolate frog wrapped in gold

Bragging rights and name up in lights!

Q. Who are the judges?

The esteemed judges are Peta Gill, a representative from LIANZA, a representative from PiCS and a random Library visitor.

Q. What are they looking for?

The judges are looking for:

  • project plan, including design principles
  • clever use of environmentally friendly materials
  • proof of engaging with the Library visitor (either actively engaged or simply being moved to comment on the display)

A course for you to explore emerging technologies and build your own digital tool-kit.

You’ll be introduced to technologies that are currently available and can easily be adapted to form part of the building of a Modern Library.

Be inspired.

Increase idea generation and innovation in your team.
