Photo Competition


2013 Winner

On behalf of the team at Adults Surviving Child Abuse - ASCA, we would like to thank everybody who took part in our annual Untangle the Knot photo competition.
The calibre of entries was so good this year - it was hard to choose just one winner. But our judges have made their difficult decision and the winner is... Peter Lloyd!

Peter's winning photo is entitled 'Against All Odds' - using the blue knot motif, the image conveys a powerful message of hope, optimism and recovery.

Against all Odds

Against All Odds by Peter Lloyd, winner of ASCA's Untangle the Knot photographic competition 2013  

Peter is married with 3 children and 2 grandchildren. He is a Sydney-sider who lives in Redfern, an area in which he enjoys the buzz of community.

Peter wanted to portray hope, to present a positive rather than a lot of the negative spin we see today. The title “Against all odds” is very apt. The idea of a seedling prospering in a harsh and desolate environment appealed to him, so he incorporated a blue knot into the image. Peter felt that it portrayed what ASCA is all about and the judges agreed.
A special thank you to Mark Tedeschi and Alan Davies, our judges again this year

“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.”
