View the journals HERE 

In this online exhibition, we are excited, to be able to present 19 of these wonderful journals for you to enjoy.

The Creative Journal Challenge was part of DESIGN Canberra 2022. Every day during the Festival in November participants responded to a creative prompt word around the theme of Transformation. Participants used various techniques in their journals including, collage, digital image making, drawing, painting, and stitching. Participants also shared their journal entries through social media, creating an impromptu creative community and providing a glimpse into people’s creative lives. 

All participants in this challenge also had the opportunity to enter our competition, be included in this online exhibition and have the chance to win a $2000 prize. Our judging panel was Jonathon Zalakos, Emma Rani-Hodges, and Jodie Cunningham.

The decision on the winner was unanimous, Hazel Francis’s beautiful journal was selected as the winner.

We warmly congratulate Hazel!

The Judges also selected a runner up, Laura Canty, and a highly commended, Nicole Henry.
