Casino Canberra "Big Chip"

The annual Canberra and Capital Region Tourism Awards provide an opportunity to showcase the best of our region's tourism operators and promote, encourage and reward tourism excellence. The awards serve to demonstrate the value of tourism to Canberra and the Capital Region. The winners are celebrated at the annual Gala Presentation Evening, which everyone involved in the tourism industry is encouraged to attend.

In 1995, Casino Canberra sponsored the awards and Screenmakers produced this custom made "chip". It was designed by Grey Advertising and contained a commemorative book for the winners as well as a VHS cassette containing various footage.

The chip was made from MDF, router-cut in layers and then glued together. It was primed and painted in a polyurethane finish.The graphics were then applied, with the whole chip then clear-coated for a glossy finish.

The text on the front of the chip was router-cut acrylic and adhesive fixed to the holographic vinyl in the centre.
