What is StreetShot about?
StreetShot is an interactive program open to independent young people and students of education institutions to learn about risk factors for viral hepatitis and how they can keep themselves healthy.
Understanding the risk factors for hepatitis, and how to stay safe isn’t always as simple as being told what to do or what not to do. Young people using creativity to reach out to other young people is a great way to build understanding and support people to make informed and healthier choices.
The StreetShot program offers:
- Free interactive health education sessions to raise awareness of viral hepatitis effects on the liver, as well as prevention, testing, treatment and addressing stigma
- Sessions are delivered face-to-face or remotely for schools, TAFES, other education organisations and services for young people.
The StreetShot Competition
The Annual StreetShot Youth Arts Competition is open to all young people under 25 years of age, regardless of whether they are connected to an education or a youth service.
- The competition is a unique way of inviting young people to share, through their own creativity, what they understand about viral hepatitis
- Participants can create an arts project of their choice, to represent their understanding of viral hepatitis, and to communicate what they think other young people need to know, for their entry to the StreetShot Competition.
- Entrants can submit any piece of art work, including photographs, illustrations, paintings, video (e.g., narrated short stories, visual, animations, playwright), games, music or audio
- The competition offers prizes for winners valued at up to $1000. These prizes are in the form of prepaid debit cards that can be used at multiple outlets!
Entries close later this year – date to be announced!
There will be an awards ceremony where selected entries are showcased and winners are announced. See the videos below for past winning entries.
How to enter
There are two categories for entries.
Young people who have attended an education session can register and submit their entry directly below.
Young people who are not connected to an education provider or haven’t attended an education session are also welcome to register and submit an entry. Before making a submission, they will need to get an understanding of viral hepatitis through our website, by speaking with a friendly staff member on webchat or calling them on our free LiverLine on 1800 7003 003.
Once that’s done, please register and submit entry below.
- Individuals or groups can submit up to three images and/or video entries.
- Where young people choose to develop an art project for their entry other than a photograph or video, a photo of the art project is required to be submitted to represent their entry.
- Each photo and/or video has to be accompanied by a short description (minimum 5, maximum 100 words) describing what they have learnt about viral hepatitis and how they have represented that in their photograph or video.
