  • Artwork by Eddie Nona
  • "Promoting excellence in vocational education, training and employment for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in Queensland."
  • Text on poster: "With a natural connection to the sea, Eddie Nona from Badu Island draws from this major source of inspiration, close to his heart and significant to his people. With a Tupmul totem, Eddie has a fascination with the sea and its underwater world. Through painting Eddie hopes to give a taste of his island home."
  • "This image was produced while I was diving for crayfish on a reef called Garralai. I watched the catfish coimg in towards the rock and a suckerfish coming in from the deep and heading back out. I stopped for a second - circling and surrounding me were four dolphins. Only now back in the boat I watch the dolphins swimming off and I realise that there had been danger and the dolphins were protecting me - 'Tuma-Yawyiak'."
