Entries for the 2011 Heywire Competition close on Monday 19 September 2011 at 5pm.
This is your chance to be part of something big.
The HEYWIRE competition is now open to people aged 16 - 22, to submit a story about life in Australia outside the major cities.
Your story can be created in any form of media: text, video, photography or audio. And if you are selected as one of our winners (roughly 40) your story will be featured on ABC Local Radio, ABC Radio National, triple j and abc.net.au.
And you'll also score an all-expenses-paid trip to the Heywire Youth Issues Forum in Canberra in February 2012.
The Heywire Forum is a chance for the participants to develop outstanding ideas and proposals that will create change in their local communities.
