About the award

The Liam and Frankie Davison Award is named in honour of RANZCOG staff member and award-winning author, Liam Davison, and his wife Frankie, a secondary school teacher, in recognition of their shared passion for nurturing and encouraging young writers.

Since 2015, RANZCOG has been awarding prize money to senior secondary school students from Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand who submit an original literary piece about an issue in women’s health that interests them.

This year we received 40 high-quality applications covering topics such as body-image issues, endometriosis, postpartum depression, abortion, gender inequality and violence against women.
