The City of Subiaco’s 2022 Tim Winton Award for Young Writers is celebrating its 30th year this year. Launching this week, the creative writing award encourages imagination, innovation and creativity, and is open to Western Australian school students across the state.
Supported by award-winning author Tim Winton, whose critically acclaimed books have been adapted for film and television, the award has remained hugely popular since its launch in 1992. Last year the City received almost 1200 entries across the state from as far as Cable Beach, South Hedland and Esperance. Entries for 2022 open from the 18th July with multiple categories and awards available.
Tim Winton said it was heartening to see the creative spirit alive and bubbling in our young people.
Mayor David McMullen said the City was proud to support art and culture in our community.
“Thirty years is a huge milestone for these awards,” he said. “This longevity is testament to their enduring popularity, and the importance of fostering creativity and providing space for expression for the next generation.”
The City of Subiaco is a proud supporter of creativity in the youth of WA, delivering awards and initiatives across art, photography and literature.
This year’s award sponsors include Ms Janet Holmes a Court, Kool Kreative, Dymocks Subiaco, and The Lane Bookshop.
The award officially launches on Monday 13 June, with entries opening Monday 18 July. Visit this link
