December’s theme – Celebrations!

Submission deadline: (New extended deadline) 30 November 2023

It’s the time of year to spread good cheer. Do you have an achievement you’d love to share? Did you discover an organisation or activity that deserves some recognition and you feel others would benefit from?  We want to round off 2023 with some real feel good stories to tie in with the high festive spirits.  There is so much good happening within the vision impaired community we want to light up the VICTA Parent Portal with tinsle-tastic, celebratory, heart warming stories!

The competition is open to young people and adults with a vision impairment aged 16+ and parents of a vision impaired child. You can write a story, share a photo story, record a video or make an audio recording. Be as creative as you like.

Your voice could be an asset to others, and we are keen to offer you an established platform on which to express yourself.
