Young Artist Competition

Share your art, win great prizes

What’s involved

In 2021, our working group of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander members, health workers, policymakers and researchers are running the HEALTHY STORiES = GOOD FOOD live event for the first time.

This brings together a National voice to strengthen action being taken at all levels (community, regional, state/territory, national) in supporting healthy food practices in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander remote community stores and other food retail outlets such as takeaways for better health and social outcomes.

As part of this, we are inviting artists to create an artwork of your story with food, remote stores and takeaways within your community.

You could consider the history of stores and food outlets in communities, the distance food travels and freight to get food to remote communities or how we see improvements in range and quality of healthy foods now but that traditional foods are still best choices.

We are proud to support young artists and are excited to see your creative interpretations of the theme.

The winning artwork will be proudly displayed on the advertising materials, social media and website for HEALTHY STORiES = GOOD FOOD. The winning entry will receive a cash prize of $1500, and additional prizes for the second ($300) and third places ($200) will be awarded.

Healthy Stores 2020

The HEALTHY STORiES = GOOD FOOD live event has come out of Healthy Stores 2020, a partnership between the Arnhem Land Progress Aboriginal Corporation (ALPA) and the research community to show a pathway for the food retail sector to support better health outcomes for communities.

In 2018, with funding from the National Health and Medical Research Council, Monash University partnered with The Arnhem Land Progress Aboriginal Corporation (ALPA) and a group of world experts in healthy food retail research from a number of universities in Australia and Canada to conduct the Healthy Stores 2020 study, a pragmatic randomised controlled trial.

The HEALTHY STORiES = GOOD FOOD live event in 2021 will be an opportunity to share further the learnings from Healthy Stores 2020 and other great stories improving health outcomes for communities through working with stores across remote Australia
