Blue Knot Day 2016 Photography Competition

As part of Blue Knot Day celebrations, Blue Knot Foundation held a photo competition on this year's theme of 'together we lead the way to survivor recovery'. Sixteen finalists were selected and exhibited at Blue Knot Day’s opening event at the Royal Automobile Club of Australia in Sydney.

We would like to thank everyone who entered, as well as our competition judge Kallena Kucers. The exhibition was stunning, with many creative and poignant entries, making the Kallena’s job all that more challenging. You can see the winning entries below. Each received a cash prize with $1000 to the winner, $500 for second place, and $250 for third. Many thanks to our sponsors, Shine Lawyers and blueshyft for their support of this event.

“Blue Knot Foundation has a key role to play in the building of community capacity in care provision to those who have experienced childhood abuse and trauma in any environment.”

NIALL MULLIGAN Manager, Lifeline Northern Rivers

“I think Blue Knot Foundation is a fantastic support organisation for people who have experienced childhood trauma/abuse, for their families/close friends and for professionals who would like to learn how to more effectively work with these people.”

Psychologist Melbourne

“It's such a beautiful thing that you are doing. Helping people to get through this.”


“It was only last September when I discovered the Blue Knot Foundation website and I will never forget the feeling of support and empathy that I received when I finally made the first phone call to Blue Knot Helpline, which was also the first time I had ever spoken about my abuse.”


"At last there is some sound education and empathetic support for individuals and partners impacted by such gross boundary violations.”
