Poster Competition 2023
Could you be the artist featured for this year’s mental health month campaign?
The winning artist will receive a $500 cash prize, 2x free tickets to the 2023 Mental Health Matters Awards along with featuring their artwork throughout the entire MHM campaign.
This years theme is “We all have a role to play“.
We all have a role to play this mental health month. Whether it’s taking time to care for yourself, caring for someone close to you, supporting your community to be more mental health aware, or being a mental health ally. This mental health month, think about ways you connect with the people around you. Making a world free from mental health stigma, and more inclusive for people who are going through tough times takes all of us! What roles will you play?
Please creatively depict your understanding of the theme as a poster artwork.

What do I need to include?
Your submission should include a space somewhere for this years theme slogan “We all have a role to play”. How you include this space is up to you.
Artists should consider accessibility and inclusivity of their submission, including colour contrast, visual focus, and appropriate use of icons and imagery. You can use any medium that can be reproduced digitally, including, but not limited to, painting, collage, digital artwork, drawing. Please note that photographs must not include people’s faces.
You do not need to include any text – this is something we will add later, though we will consult you regarding position and size of text.
- Lived experience includes anyone who identifies as having lived experience of mental ill- health and/or distress, this can include people with diagnosed mental health conditions, people who have experienced trauma, and people who experience social impacts and/or oppressions that cause distress. There is no “proof” of lived experience required – our aim is to make space to elevate the voices and work of people with lived experience.
- Winners will be decided by a panel that includes people with lived experience, people who work in mental health promotion, and artists.
- Competition entries close on 19th April.
