Amplify - Through my eyes

A visual arts opportunity for young Queenslanders aged 13 to 18 years

The Queensland Family and Child Commission's (QFCC) Youth Advisory Council (YAC) has launched an exciting new youth participation opportunity!


In our Growing Up in Queensland project, you had the opportunity to write to us and share your experiences around growing up in 2020. 

Now is your chance to express your thoughts and opinions through a visual lens.


Send us your painting, drawing, photograph or graphic artwork showing us one of these three themes:


  • Community - Visually tell us about your family, friends, and community. Who are they, what makes them unique, what do you like about them and what are you connected to.
  • Hopes and dreams – Visually tell us about what you want to do in the future, what do you want from life, what do you dream of and how are you going to achieve your dreams.
  • Issues important to you – Visually tell us about the issues that are most important to you, what challenges and opportunities you see as a young Queensland.

By submitting your artwork you are in with a chance to have your artwork published, promoted and showcased in the QFCC’s activities and projects and win one of four prizes on offer!

Your artwork could even become the cover of the upcoming Growing Up in Queensland report!

Step up!

Show everyone the world through your eyes!

Send us your artwork and let us amplify you and your art!
