Important info about the Meme Competition!

Your photo can be anything you want, but try and make sure it has something to do with your message. If your photo comes from the internet make sure you are allowed to use it. If you take a photo, make sure you have permission from any people whose faces are visible and that everyone is over 18.
Make sure your message is positive and empowering! We want as many people as possible to participate but will only approve memes we feel are in the spirit of Youth Homelessness Matters Day!

Competition is open to all Australian young people aged 24 and under. Competition winner will be picked based on number of likes and shares but judges reserve the right to exercise judgment on suitability of entry and entrant. All judges decisions are final.

The competition will close at midnight on YHMD 2016.
