the 2020 good stuff awards are open!


We’re back to celebrate the rad creative types in our midst.

Sound the alarm – the frankie Good Stuff awards are back! We’re itching to see more of the creative talent floating around Australia and New Zealand, and to show those new (and returning) faces a whole lot of love.

We started Good Stuff to give creative types a well-deserved pat on the back, so whether you’re an artist, crafter, designer, photographer, videographer, entrepreneur, writer, musician or socially minded type, we’d love to hear from you.

Simply select the personal project you’re most proud of, figure out which category it fits in best, then scoot over to our entry page to send it off to us. To support top-notch talent during this tricky time, we’ve made entry totally free!

WHAT’S UP FOR GRABS? Each category winner will receive a feature in issue 98 of frankie, a one-on-one mentoring session with their relevant judge, and a year’s subscription to frankie magazine. But wait, there’s more! The reader’s choice winner will also get a feature in issue 98, a $500 voucher from General Assembly to further their skills, along with a year’s subscription to frankie.

WHO ARE THE JUDGES? We’re pretty chuffed with this stellar line-up. Without further ado:
