‘Why Do I Care?’ Writing Competition
Each year, as part of National Carers Week we run a competition specifically for carers. It’s an opportunity to get creative, have some fun and share your talents with others.
We want to know why you care
The reasons why you care may be very simple or they may be complex. You may care because of love, cultural reasons and obligation or simply because you believe you are best placed to offer the quality of life for your loved one.
There may be other reasons such as companionship, enjoying your time together, the satisfaction that you are helping others or developing new skills.
This year we wanted to recognise and celebrate carer achievements, while also creating awareness of the important role carers play in the community.
The 2018 winner, Kylie Minns, was our special guest at the Carers Week Launch and Gala Lunch on Friday 12 October 2018, in Brisbane.
A presentation of all entries will be screened at regional Carers Week events throughout Queensland. An exhibition of the entries will also be shown at the People’s Gallery, Brisbane City Hall, during Carers Week. Click here to view the entries.
