In 2023, Run For It and the Foundation for Young Australians (FYA), in partnership with a coalition of youth organisations, are establishing a national youth-led campaign to lower the voting age to 16. To help launch the campaign and inspire other young people to call for their inclusion within national decision making we’ll be capturing some images and videos at key events. In the form below, we’re asking for your consent to include you in this content. 

How and where will the content be used / stored?

Photos, videos and other content may be made available on Make It 16, FYA and/or Run 4 It’s website and social media platforms and shared with an extended online community.

The personal information collected in this form will be stored and used in accordance with our privacy policy, which you can read about on our website here.

Our ethical storytelling guidelines inform the way we share stories and content. You’re in charge of how we use your image – if there’s anything in the future we want to do with the content that’s outside our original agreement we’ll check in with you beforehand.

What are you asking me to consent to?

Individual photography

Anyone and everyone (or a legally authorised representative) FYA interviews, photographs or films must give their free, enthusiastic, and informed consent for us to do so.

We are asking if you are comfortable with us capturing and using your voice and image in content as part of Make It 16.

If an individual doesn’t want their image used they absolutely don’t have to provide consent.

Before publishing any interviews, photographs or films all staff will share the content with the participants included in the content

Large groups and events

When filming or photographing people in public spaces or at large events, consent is not legally required from people whose faces are close up and/or are clearly visible and identifiable.

However, wherever possible, FYA aims to seek informed consent from the group by either sharing this information prior, posting signage at events to alert people that we will be filming / taking photos and asking those who don’t wish to be filmed or photographed to let us know. If it’s not possible to inform all participants prior to capture, we seek to do so prior to publication.

What if I don't want to be involved?

If you’re not keen to take part, no worries at all, this is 100% optional to participate in. Please set the appropriate response in the form.

How can I find out more information?

If you have any questions, please get in touch with to have a chat. We can also chat about what we can do to make sure you can participate, including how we can be accessible and safe.

We ask for some personal details in this form. These are collected for the purpose of capturing your consent ahead of events and actions for Make It 16, so that we know whether we have your consent to capture, use and store information / content about you. 

If at any time you wish to opt-out or withdraw your consent, you can email us at
