Young Australian Art & Writers’ Awards – Children’s Charity Network
Last Saturday evening I had the pleasure of attending the annual Young Australian Art & Writers’ Awards and dinner at the RACV Club in Melbourne. The awards, run by the Children’s Charity Network, celebrate the artistic and literary talents of children from all over Australia.
It’s lovely to see so many children and young adults given the opportunity to showcase and further develop their literary and artistic talents. It’s a big thing for them to have their work chosen for an award and to be invited to the celebration of the awards. Seeing their smiling faces as they take to the stage to accept their awards is always something special that warms the heart.

I’m sure many of them will go on to pursue careers in the arts in the areas of writing, art or photography, they are our future.
