The Greek War of Independence. The Greek Uprising. The Greek Revolution. Three different names, all commemorating and celebrating the same event.

On March 25, 1821, the Greek revolt against the Ottoman Empire began, signalling Greece’s rise to freedom.

As Greek nationals and the Greek diaspora celebrates across the world, it is the children of first and second generation Greeks in Australia that will experience a new feeling of patriotism and honour.

To encourage Greek Australian children to learn more about this incredible piece of Greek history, The Greek Herald will be hosting a new competition: The Greek War of Independence through your eyes.

It’s hard to imagine what Greeks at the time of the revolution felt, yet we can bring their spirits to life on canvas or paper.

For this competition, participants will be required to submit any piece of writing or artwork that conveys the history of the Greek War of Independence.

You can submit your artwork of the Battle of Valtetsi, write a diary entry from the perspective of one of the heroes or a summary of the eight-year war.

Like our competitions in the past, submissions written in Greek and English will be accepted for the competition.

The finalists will be separated into different age group categories, with a special prize awarded to the first place winner of each age group.

Prizes for each age group:

  • School year 5 to 7

Winner: $100 Westfield Voucher and work published in The Greek Herald’s March 25th Edition and on our digital platforms.

  • School year 8 to 10

Winner: $100 Westfield Voucher and work published in The Greek Herald’s March 25th Edition and on our digital platforms.

  • School year 11 and 12

How to enter:

Send through your submissions by Thursday, 18th March 2021, 17:00 AEST, with the title “Submission – The Greek War of Independence Competition” to the Greek Herald email address at: greek@foreignlanguage.com.au.
