The Lung Foundation Australia Launches Competition Open to Creatives
The search is on for Just One Breath heroes. Lung Foundation Australia has launched a national competition, looking for creative interpretations that will inspire Australians on the power of breath. The competition aims to find new stories about people doing extraordinary things with their lung power.
The competition is open to writers, filmmakers, illustrators, poets and creatives in general who can enter by sharing their hero story by shooting a short film, writing an inspirational poem, snapping a jaw-dropping photo, writing a song, illustrating, painting... simply, creating their own interpretive masterpiece.

Now it's time for us to start taking our lung health just as seriously. The competition aims to inspire Aussies to think about their lungs, and create stories that can be shared socially to promote better lung health.
