The Australian Embassy is delighted to introduce the 2024 Rabbit Card, a visual testament to the enduring friendship between Australia and Thailand. This collaboration, initiated by the Australian Embassy, aims to encapsulate the cultural ties between the two nations through a carefully crafted design.
Designed by Khun Monsicha, the Rabbit Card showcases a juxtaposition of iconic symbols from both countries. On one side, the card features a kangaroo against the backdrop of the Sydney Opera House, while the reverse side portrays an elephant near a traditional Thai temple. This intentional blend seeks to symbolize the harmonious coexistence of Australian and Thai cultures.
Over 100 designers participated in the competition, contributing to a diverse array of creative expressions. The selection process was rigorous, and the winning design reflects a careful curation of artistic merit.
The Australian Embassy extend their gratitude to their sponsors, Thai Airways and Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok, whose generous contributions will provide the winners with a round-trip plane ticket to Melbourne and accommodations in both Australia and Thailand.
For those intrigued by the prospect of contributing to future editions, the Australian Embassy’s Rabbit Card Design Competition serves as an open call to both amateur and professional graphic designers. Submissions must highlight the warm and friendly relationship shared between Australia and Thailand.
In closing, the Embassy commend all participants for their artistic endeavors, which have enriched the visual representation of the cultural connection between these two nations. The Rabbit Card, beyond being a functional card, stands as a symbol of diplomatic and artistic collaboration.
