2024 Open Call

The response to the 2023 Girls Like Us Open Call was overwhelming, with incredibly talented entries from across the world: South Africa, America, Australia, Brazil. As part of the open call, girls were asked what it is that they love about creating art. We saw a strong overriding theme of a love of creating freely, without limitations and rules. A theme which sings perfectly in tune with what is at the heart of Aunt Joy – a determination to create more space for women in art and carve an easier, freer path for young female creatives. 

It was important to us that we opened the call to girls between 8 and 14. Multiple studies show that across these years girls confidence levels drop by 30% (source). It feels to us that it's these sensitive formative years where we have the most potential to inspire.

The Girls Like Us collection includes limited edition prints and original paintings, all created by featured Aunt Joy artists, with the selected artworks by young girls at the core. The selected young girls receive one of the artworks their art is featured in.

A huge, heartfelt thank you to everyone involved.
