Good news: after two exciting years, the frankie Good Stuff awards are back for round three! We started this initiative to give people making cool things a leg up – so if you’re an artist, crafter, designer, photographer, videographer, entrepreneur, writer, musician or socially minded type from Australia or New Zealand, we want to hear from you.
What’s up for grabs? Each of the 11 winners (one for each category plus the reader-voted people’s choice award) will receive:
- a $1000 cash prize
- a year’s subscription to frankie magazine
- a feature in issue 89
- an invite to a special winners’ dinner, where you’ll get to mingle with the judges and frankie press team
If you need a little extra dose of inspiration, many of our past finalists and winners have gone on to do amazing things:
- 2018 fashion winner Amanda Farncomb launched her debut collection, Farn
- 2017 art + illustration winner Freya Jobbins held a solo show at judge Jeremy Wortsman’s gallery, Lamington Drive
- 2017 photography winner Bri Hammond was signed with Stocksy, the category sponsor.
And that’s just a few of the success stories - plenty of folks have also featured in the pages of frankie, on our podcast and in our one-off book, Look What We Made.
Who are the judges? We’re so glad you asked. Our wonderful judges are kind of a big deal in their respective fields, and we’re very excited to have them on board.
