The Spirit of Youth Awards is a competition held by Qantas that helps emerging artists in 11 key creative disciplines including interactive gaming, music, writing, film making, architecture and more. The competition has been held for over eight years and has helped many talents develop. The winner of each category receives a mentorship and $5000 of air travel to follow their creative dreams.
This is my second year entering the written word category and I find myself sitting amongst some pretty amazing entries. Included is the work of Alli Sebastion Wolf, Patrick Lenton, Angela Meyer, Tom Hogan, Ava Karuso and Jess Messenger. The competition is a great opportunity to see the portfolios of many rising stars of the literature world. Below is my own entry which I would love you to comment on and like.
