The Expression Project Competition

Can you express yourself in 20 words or less?

Join ‘The Expression Project’ for the chance to have your words displayed as window art in Hastings City and to WIN $250*. Whether it’s thoughtful, beautiful, funny or personal - express your thoughts on Hastings in this creative writing challenge.

Competition open now and closes Sunday 8th May 2022.

You have only 20 words to express something thoughtful, beautiful, personal or funny about Hastings. This can be a haiku, a lyric, a pun, a metaphor or a phrase and can be in any language (but English translation is required).

There will be 5 winners selected, each receiving a prize of $250 Hastings City vouchers of their choice and they will have their words paired with artwork and used to decorate an empty window in the CBD.
