A Year in the Life – Influence

Join us in this year-long exploration of diverse perspectives, emotions, and stories, as we celebrate the beauty found in the ordinary and extraordinary moments of life. We are collaborating with photographers to build a visual diary that unfolds month by month, capturing the essence of different themes that resonate with the human experience all over the world. From the changing seasons to the raw emotions that define us, each month offers a canvas for you to share your unique perspective.

Here are the June winners of A Year in the Life! This month’s theme was INFLUENCE.


‘Myna Melodies: The Influence of Sound’
Darcie (she/her) 25 VIC

“Captured in Fiji, Myna birds mimic a variety of sounds – birds, alarms, even human speech—illustrating influence through this exceptional skill.”


‘Sunset on the Water’
Holly (she/her), 16 WA

“Watching the sunset from inside the Katherine Gorge.”


‘As small as droplets’
Aurelne (she/her) 25 WA

“If something as fluid and soft as a droplet of water can create something this beautiful, then we should never underestimate the influence we could have.”





‘Changing Seasons’
Addison (she/her), 17 WA
“Driving through the Canberra roads and seeing snow for the first time on the trees around us.’
