The winner will be published on our website in 2018 and could go on to be an official Amnesty blogger, with the chance to have their blogs published on a regular basis. They will also win a gift voucher for an online course at the Australian Writers’ Centre worth $450. From Creative Writing to Copywriting Essentials – choose your own adventure!

Three runner-up bloggers will also have their blogs published on the Amnesty Australia website throughout 2018.

How does it work?

The human rights blogosphere is an inspiring place. To be part of it, all you need to do is write a blog with a human rights theme. You don’t have to be an expert – just put pen to paper (or, fingers to keyboard) and send us your finished work of no more than 700 words.

Your blog post should focus on a current human rights issue and could be:

  • a topical piece (women’s rights, refugee rights, indigenous rights)
  • a recount of your personal experience with a human rights issue
  • an interview with someone close to a human rights issue.

The choice is yours. Check out our blogs and features for writing inspiration.
