Feeling All Write

Writing Competition

We challenged Australia to devise their most creative prose around the topic of mental health. Apart from the winner receiving a swag of prizes, their idea was also turned into a short film.

After being unindated with an absolute flood of entries, we picked our favourite based on:

The winner was Craig Emery from Queensland with his entry. "The Blue Letterbox". His idea has also spawned a whole new initative by Spur Projects called (ironically enough) The Blue Letterbox that will be launching nation-wide in 2016.

Special mention also goes to:
