2022 Young Carers Digital Art Competition

Carers WA invites you to take part in the 2022 Young Carer Digital Art Competition. We would like you to use your digital genius and creative savvy to show us what a day in the life of a carer is like.

The theme is open to how ever you interpret it! Some questions you might want to base your art on are:
What inspires you?
What are the things that make you, you?
⭐What are your strengths?
⭐What do you love?
⭐Do you love hanging out with your friends? What does that look like?
⭐What do you like to do on the weekend?
⭐Do you love sport? If you’re a mad footy fan for example, we’d love to see that!

We can’t wait to see what you can come up with!

All artworks must somehow engage with technology. For example, you could submit;

📷 a photo or photo collage

📱 A digital artwork creation done on a mobile device, tablet or a computer.

🎨 A painting or 3D sculpture that you can take a photo of and submit.

✍ A piece of poetry that you have artistically designed around your writing.

🎥 A video you have created and edited.

🎧 You might have even written a song you’d like to share.

Let your imagination run wild as we encourage you to think outside of the box (there’s an extra prize for that too)!

Applications close Monday, 19th September 2022.
