Thanks for your response, Sonya.
The issue I am having is that there are so many examples and templates, some applicable and others not, that I am having trouble finding a simple contract that covers me legally and properly outlines the fees and quotes I have given (most on a site like docracy still use checks).
Would something like AGDA's Client Terms & Conditions be suitable as a starting point?

I'm fairly new to Aus Infront (I think I heard about it as a sponsor of the Design Conference by Analogue Digital up in Brisbane) but recently I finished my degree in graphic design and found a couple of freelance jobs both in Aus and overseas.
While I had been studying, most of my design work was small enough that it was usually cash-in-hand with the only contract I wrote for a photoshoot (for licensing of the photos since I hadn't dealt with them before and wanted to cover myself legally). So I am now at the stage where I need a graphic design contract (on a single project basis) and a more formal business understanding for my commercial design career.
So my question is, for a junior designer, how should I build my contract (through a soliciter or legal advisor)? And should overseas projects be paid to me in the local/client's currency or my own currency?
Thanks in advance for your help,
