Part of our work is to bring more visibility to issues relating to people of minority sexualities, sexes and genders. As part of this endeavour, InsideOUT launched Expression in 2016 – a multi-media arts competition for young people aged 13-19. Films, artwork and writing created by young people with LGBTQIA+ themes are eligible to enter.
InsideOUT recognises that students are already writing and making films and art with rainbow themes that contain positive representations, challenge norms and confront LGBTQIA+ issues. This competition is intended to bring more visibility to these multi-media arts, reward the young people who are creating this content, and heighten the awareness of our organisation and the work that we do.

Submissions from Expression will be open again from 1st May to 31st October 2017. You can learn about the previous winners here.
