VOICES OF WOMEN: A CALL OUT FOR WOMEN’S STORIES

On the back of the international success of its award-winning film project Entanglement, Voices of Women rolls out its 5th story competition – Embellishment. 

Founded in 2018, Voices of Women has grown into a key Australian and international program that produces, funds and promotes the public performance of new works written by women. The organisation runs an annual competition for short stories written in the first person and presents them using trained actors in live performances and films. Powered by a company of diverse female actors, musicians, writers, producers, filmmakers and artists, VOW has already run five annual literary competitions, produced 27 live performances, and released two feature films and 12 short films.

VOW’s 2022 feature film, Entanglement, is currently being shown in film festivals in New York, Los Angeles, Paris, Dublin, Toronto and Sydney – garnering international awards and recognition wherever it goes. VOW’s Artistic Director Lliane Clarke has also recently been awarded the Carla Zampatti Arts and Culture Medal by Multicultural NSW in recognition of her collaborative creative work with diverse women.

Now, VOW is on the lookout for their next batch of women’s stories! Inspired by the prompt Embellishment, VOW encourages women of all backgrounds and ages to embellish their stories with rich language and wild imagination. Submissions close February 2023.
