In May last year we ran a Rosie Creator’s Award competition and were overwhelmed by the amount of talented and perceptive submissions. The creativity and hard work put into each submission was so impressive that we just had to share them all over again!

Writing: Janine by Anna Soundappan
“You have a habit of catching things. They’re not always good things; occasionally you catch a cold, or a splintered branch that falls from a tree in your backyard. Once, as you watched Kit’s hand wander down Janine’s back in Chemistry, your ponytail caught fire – but in a flurry of towels and water, you wound up unhurt. Physically, at least.”

Photography: Two-Faced by Emily Song
Emily Song is a 14 year old photographer from WA. Her portrait of a friend addresses the subject of self-respect, exploring what society and the media wants a girl to be, contrasted with what she really is. Emily was inspired by Paulo Coehlo’s quote: “When you say ‘yes’ to others, make sure you are not saying ‘no’ to yourself.”
Activism: Lily Dunn
As a passionate student nurse and a survivor of an eating disorder, Lily knows a thing or two about body image and the importance of accepting yourself as you are. Through the Rosie Creators Award, Lily will be attending the BodyThink Workshop with the Butterfly Foundation, and aims to give talks and workshops at high schools about her experiences with an eating disorder.
