Judging commences for the 2021 My Place competition

Judging commences for the 2021 My Place competition

Presented in partnership between ABC Education and the ACTF, this year’s My Place Competition received almost 900 entries from young writers across the country. 

Students entering the 2021 My Place Competition were asked to write about the diverse histories of their own communities. We received submissions from all corners of the country, with government, Catholic, independent, special schools and homeschools all represented. We were thrilled to have so many students engage with the competition, including those who joined Nadia Wheatley’s webinar for young writers.    

Entries are now being shortlisted, with an announcement expected within the next two weeks. Winning students and their teachers will receive a range of prizes, including signed copies of My Place, Walker Books prize packs and ACTF vouchers (see the competition page for full details).

Winning entries will be announced via social media and the ACTF Education eNews. Stay tuned!
