Ineka Voigt from Canberra wins Doodle 4 Google 2015

Earlier this year we announced our latest Doodle 4 Google competition, in which we asked school students across Australia to draw their own version of the Google logo, inspired by the theme “If I could go back in time I would...” Now, more than 26,000 doodles later, we can announce the winning entry.

Congratulations to Ineka Voigt of Canberra High School in ACT who has just been named the overall national winner for this year’s Doodle 4 Google competition. Ineka has won a Chromebook laptop and Nexus tablet for herself and $10,000 worth of technology for her school. Her doodle will be featured on the homepage next year. 

Ineka’s doodle is titled “Stolen Dreamtime”. Ineka said: “ If I could travel back in time I would reunite mother and child. A weeping mother sits in an ochre desert, dreaming of her children and a life that never was... all that remains is red sand, tears and the whispers of her stolen dreamtime.” 

Congratulations also to our other national age group winners, Years 1-3 Billy Mahaffy, Scotch College Junior School, WA; Years 4-6 Samuel Nelson, St Joseph's Catholic Primary School, QLD; and Years 7-8: Shalayne Smith, Marymount College, QLD.

The National Age Group Winners spent yesterday at the Art Gallery of NSW in Sydney for the unveiling of the National Winner. The young doodlers also saw their work in a special display at the gallery. Special thanks to Leanne Carr from the Art Gallery of NSW for her generous support of the competition and for an unforgettable day at the Gallery.

Thank you to all our thousands of doodlers from across Australia, and look out for Ineka’s doodle on our homepage.
