Organised by:
UTS Muslim Society (UTSMS)

Competition guidelines:

To launch the next stage of this collaborative campaign, Muslim Student Associations are working together to bring you a state wide competition to assert your right of confidence as a young Muslim in Australia. The competition encompasses a large and significant part of our Muslim community; from senior high school to tertiary students and anyone in between.

The aim of this mission, should you choose to accept it; is to submit a piece you have personally created in one of the four categories below. The overriding theme is what inspires confidence in you as a young Muslim, or equally how Islam inspires YOU to be strong and confident. The range of work that can be submitted is large and perhaps most important of all, so are the prizes.

What? You didn’t think we wouldn’t provide some earthly justification for putting in some good effort we have also included runner-up prizes up for grabs. The best submissions will also get a chance to be showcased in one of our main events!

The competition is comprised of four categories;
