Online Poster/Visual Media Competition

To promote Sexual Violence Awareness Month (SVAM), this October in Australia, Living Well is holding an Online Poster/Visual Media Competition. This Competition is now a joint project with 1in6.org from the USA, as equal partners, we are committed to assisting men who have had unwanted or abusive sexual experiences to live healthier, happier lives.

1in6

In partnership with 1in6.org, we are offering three prizes, totalling $1500 in prize money, to the artist/s who create a Poster or Visual Media which best expresses the theme:

‘Sexual abuse is something that I experienced… It’s not who I am.’

Art is a powerful medium that can both bear witness and support personal and social change. This competition provides an avenue for artists, art students, art educators, art therapists, anyone, to use their creativity to express and explore this complex issue.

Rationale for this theme

The statement ‘Sexual abuse is something that I experienced… It is not who I am’ was made by a man attending the Living Well Service. It has been chosen as the competition theme for the way that it both acknowledges a man’s experience of sexual abuse and his commitment to living a life defined by him.

Research tell us that 1 in 6 men will experience childhood sexual abuse and that on average they will take 22 years to tell someone about it, 10 years longer than women. When men do come forward, they often talk of their being limited public awareness or supportive accounts that speak to their experience.

In our work with men who have been subjected to sexual abuse our challenge is to find ways to both acknowledge the profound horror, pain and difficulties produced by sexual assault, whilst simultaneously noticing and supporting a person’s struggles, ways of managing, holding on to hope, engaging with and commitment to living a full life. At Living Well and 1in6 we see our work as inspiring, hopeful, transformative, life supporting work that acknowledges that people’s lives are multi-storied. We are looking to reward and promote the poster/visual media that navigates this complex terrain and best addresses the identified theme ‘Sexual abuse is something that I experienced… It is not who I am.’

Visual Media can raise awareness and become inspirational

Rosie the Riveter Obama: Hope
J. Howard Miller’s “We Can Do It!”, commonly referred to as Rosie the Riveter The 2008 presidential campaign Obama “Hope” poster by Shepard Fairey

Note: Take a look at the gallery of posters we have collected. In referring to this material, we would ask that competition entrants see these resources as a record of what has already been produced, not what might be produced. In developing an entry for submission, please be aware that posters and visual media that utilise offensive or sexualised imagery will not be included in the competition.

We very much welcome entries in both traditional poster format and ‘new visual electronic media’ from anywhere in the world. There is no requirement to include or not include the text ‘Sexual abuse is something that I experienced… It is not who I am’. The intention is for the Poster/Visual Media to become an expression of this theme in ways that connects with the viewer and conveys the message.

$1500 in Prize Money

  • 1st prize – $1000 (Awarded by Competition Panel)
  • Runner up – $250 (Awarded by Competition Panel)
  • People’s choice – $250
  • Competition Panel will be announced soon – watch this space.
  • Submissions to be received by the 3rd of October 2011
  • Winners to be announced on the 26th of October 2011

Competition Panel

Accepted posters/visual media will be posted to the Competition Entries page of this site to support voting for the people’s choice. It is also planned, with artists approval, for a montage of submitted posters/visual media to be developed and posted online in video format.

How you can help. In order to assist us in promoting this event, as well as increasing awareness and support for those who have experienced sexual violence, we ask that you let as many people as you can know about the competition, be it by email, word of mouth, on Facebook, twitter, Tumblr, or some other means. Please distribute this Competition Flyer and/or link this page.

World Wetlands Day falls on February 2 each year. It is an international event declared by the United Nations to commemorate the signing of the Ramsar Convention to protect and preserve wetlands around the world. World Wetlands Day is an excellent opportunity to undertake activities focused on raising awareness of the values and environmental benefits of wetlands, both locally and globally. The theme for World Wetlands Day 2011 is Wetlands, Tourism and Recreation

If you are interested in gaining more information on World Wetlands Day and the Ramsar Convention, see http://www.ramsar.org/.

 Wetlands are essential, not only as an intrinsic component of balanced ecosystems and sustainable catchments, but also because they provide services to human society and biodiversity generally. The solutions our planets’ needs require creativity and new ideas – a great opportunity to link art and the environment!

– What makes Kirribilli, Kirribilli?
– How do you define Kirribilli?
– How do others define Kirribilli?
– How does Kirribilli compare to her neighbours near or far?
– Who is Kirribilli ?
We are looking for striking works that will resonate with locals, intrigue tourists and engage passers-by.

Copyright Agency Limited launches Artlike competition on Facebook

Copyright Agency Limited (CAL), a leading Australian rights management organisation, today announced the launch of Artlike, an art appreciation initiative using social media platform, Facebook.

Artlike is an art competition run through CAL’s Artists’ Resale Royalty Facebook page – where budding artists can submit their work to CAL for posting on the page, with the winner chosen by the amount of ‘Likes’ received.

Since June 2010, CAL has played a larger role in the visual arts sector after being selected to manage the artists’ resale royalty scheme on behalf of the Australian government.

CAL’s Visual Arts Manager, Tristan Chant, explains that Artlike is designed to help CAL engage with the arts scene by providing the platform for artists to reach broader audiences.

‘Exposure is something up and coming artists cannot do without. And while the traditional means of getting people to see your art won’t be going anywhere fast, digital media is opening up more opportunities for the young artist to make a name for themselves,’ says Tristan.

Tristan says the competition will effectively use Facebook’s existing functionality to give artists an opportunity to show their talents. ‘Artists are realising the value of social media in showing others what they can do. They can test the waters with their works before going the whole hog in an exhibition.’

The winning artwork will be published in the print and electronic editions of Calendar – CAL’s quarterly magazine along with a short profile of the artist, which will be sent to over 15,000 creators all over Australia. CAL will be running this competition periodically every three months to coincide with Calendar’s quarterly publishing schedule.

‘Artlike offers participants considerable exposure, as well as the added benefit of review from their peers. From CAL’s perspective, we hope that the additional traffic to our Resale Royalty Facebook page, will help to spread the word about the royalties being paid to artists under the artists’ resale royalty scheme,’ Tristan adds.

To find out more about Artlike or to download the application please click here. Please read and agree to all Terms and Conditions before entering.
