Creating Period Pride Competition
We are asking young Australians in schools and community groups to create ‘Period Pride Media’ to inspire, entertain and get people talking about periods!

Email with your entry to go in the running to win $5000 for your school or community group.

The Creating Period Pride competition encourages Australia's youth to submit creative, thought-provoking content that aims to remove the shame and stigma associated with having a period.

What you will need to do

We believe that a creative thinking process will drive discovery and learning, awareness of stigmas, encourage empathy and be part of the solution.

Whether it’s videos (long and short form), TikTok/Instagram reel style video or dance, artwork, cartoon a short film including featuring anything from plays, skits, animation, dance or stories, through to posters, comics, music or poems. It’s totally up to you!

Need some insipiration? Check out some of our favourite 2022 entries. 

When your group has finished getting creative you can email your finished product to by October 1 2023 to enter the competition!

In 2021 we published the Bloody Big Survey Report.

It received 125,000 responses, which makes it the world's largest data collection on menstruation. 

The report data indicates girls are starting their period younger than ever, and that 48 per cent of respondents have missed out on  school or sport due to their period.

What's worse, is 22 per cent of respondents have had to improvise on period products due to being unable to afford them. Period poverty isn't going anywhere anytime soon unless we make tangible change.

How do we remove the shame and stigma around menstruation? We don't know, so we are going to go to our future leaders and changemakers to ask them how we should do it! Enter our Creating Period Pride Competion...

Creating Period Pride for young Australians

The first 50 registered schools and community groups will be sent a Period Pride toolkit in February 2022. 

The Creating Period Pride toolkit includes everything needed to get kids talking about periods and removing the shame and stigma around periods.

The pack will get students well on their way to creating media that will change the way we think about periods.

So what are you waiting for, register now! We are so excited to create period pride with you.
