Unfiltered Thoughts

Ever had a thought bubble pop into your head and wondered if others felt the same? Or better yet, have a deep desire to share it with the world?

WhyNot’s Unfiltered Thoughts series is your chance to do just that! Our Unfiltered Thoughts series are not fully fledged submissions. Nor should they be modified, processed, or refined. They are, quite literally, bubbles of thought (100 – 200 words) in their most natural state (from your brain to the screen). Some might say they are akin to Twitter – except we want to pay you for them! That’s right! Every published Unfiltered Thought will receive $50.

You can submit your Unfiltered Thoughts through written text, an image, a video, or even an audio recording using the below form. Check back regularly to this page to find out what the latest topic request is or give us a follow on social media!

Currently looking for your thoughts on the Federal Election… 

It’s official! The 2022 Federal Election will be held on Saturday 21 May.  We want to know your thoughts on the issues that matter to you and what changes you would like to see politicians advocate for.  

Some question to prompt your thoughts: –

What issues matter to you this federal election?

What changes are you hoping will take place?

Do you care or not care about the federal election?

Do you feel voting is a chance for your voice to be heard?
