Youth Futures Creative Competition

675,000 young people today are either unemployed or underemployed.

As young people, we face many different barriers to employment including – age, disability, education, culture & race, employer prejudice or bias, mental health, social isolation and so many more.

We want to know what employment barriers – you have experienced (inclusive of those in and out of your control).

The WhyNot? platform has partnered with the National Youth Commission to amplify the voices of young people, prompt discussions and raise issues around young people and their transition from school to work.

The Youth Futures competition is calling for all creative submissions from young people aged 18 to 30 addressing the topic of barriers to employment.

Shortlisted submission will be published and displayed at the Youth Futures Summit and the winner of the competition will receive a free 2-day pass to the Summit.
