The GirlMade  Project Centenary Edition  theme is  Empowering Future Women.  GirlMade showcases the diverse creative and artistic talents of the girls and women of Girl Guides NSW, ACT & NT. 

In 2020 we are launching a special Centenary Edition to celebrate the centenary of Girl Guides in NSW by looking to the future, with the theme empowering future women underscoring our commitment to shaping the leaders of tomorrow. The GirlMade Project is open to all current Girl Guides NSW, ACT & NT Girl Guides and Adult Members 5–105+.  

Artworks can be worked on as part of a Girl Guide [email protected] term program, within [email protected] Unit meetings, or as an individual. Each artwork  entered into the GirlMade Project must be created by an individual, it cannot be a collaborative work.  

Participants are encouraged to ponder the theme; to make it personally and internally meaningful before externally creating and inspiring others through their art. Members will enter their artworks  through an online submission portal.

  1. Pre-junior Guides (5–7)
  2. Junior Guides (7–10)
  3. Guides (10–14)
