2020’s poster competition has now closed. Thank you to all the schools and students who submitted their entries.


2020 theme: Celebrate our differences and create a colourful world

This national competition is open to all primary schools across Australia and coincides with the National Day of Action Against Bullying and Violence in March. The aim of the competition is to raise awareness of bullying and to assist schools and organisations to identify and address bullying behaviours in their communities. In 2019, over 38,000 students registered to take part with thousands of posters sent in for judging.
