We are working behind the scenes on some exciting updates to the Play Safe website and are looking for people to take part in an upcoming photoshoot. We’ve put together an amazing group of creatives and are so excited to feature people like YOU on our website, socials and communications materials.
The photoshoot will be held in Marrickville (Sydney, NSW) over two days (Wednesday 7 June 2023 and Thursday 8 June 2023). Based on your availability, you will be allocated a 3-hour time slot on one of these dates and will receive a $150 Eftpos gift card as a thank you for your time.
We’re looking for people under the age of 30 who can truly embody the diverse community of young people across NSW. All genders, body types, sexualities, ethnicities, abilities and personal styles are welcome!
We’d absolutely love to hear from any couples, friends or groups wanting to get involved too (we’ll make sure you’re scheduled in together).
Date: Wednesday 7 June 2023 and Thursday 8 June 2023
Time: You will be allocated a 3-hour time slot on one of the above dates (based on your availability)

This photoshoot will not require any nudity and we will make sure you are 100% comfortable the entire time. The images will not be used in the context of being diagnosed with a specific STI, abortion, drugs or alcohol, illegal activity or anything that may have negative connotations.
If you have any questions, flick us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
SUBMISSIONS HAVE CLOSED.
Thank you to everyone who expressed their interest.
We have been overwhelmed by the response and will be in touch with everyone by the end of this week to let you know the outcome of your submission.
Play Safe is a public health program, run by NSW Health that connects young people across NSW to accurate and relevant sexual health information online.
We’re looking to get a bunch of pictures that show real young people in NSW being themselves. You can get an idea of the photos we want to take here.
This photoshoot will not require any nudity and we will make sure you are 100% comfortable the entire time.
They will be used to promote important sexual and reproductive health messages, including STI testing, condom use, contraception, dating, and relationships, consent and sex.
The images will not be used in the context of being diagnosed with a specific STI, abortion, drugs or alcohol, illegal activity or anything that may have negative connotations.
Yes! No experience is necessary for this shoot. You won’t need to do any specific ‘poses’ or anything, we’ll mostly be asking you to smile and look like you’re having fun (which we’re sure you will be, so that shouldn’t be too hard haha).
They will be used across a range of NSW Health communication channels including social media and website. Most images will be featured on the Play Safe, Play Safe Pro and International Student Health Hub websites.
You will receive a $150 Visa gift card as a thank you for your time (3 hours).
Yes! 100%! No matter your style, sexuality, body type, ethnicity, gender, or physical ability, we’d love to work with you!
The images will be used for a period of three years. After that period, the Play Safe team will reach out to you each year to confirm if you are still comfortable with us using your image.
You can expect to be at the photoshoot for the full three-hour period you’re scheduled (based on your availability).
After the photoshoot wraps up, the photographer will process all the images and provide us with a selection of the best images from the shoot.
Once we receive these, we will send you copies of any of the images you are in. Please note that these can be used on your personal social media channels and in any modelling or talent portfolios but cannot be sold or shared for commercial gain.
We’ve pulled together an amazing group of professionals to help us pull off this photoshoot. You will be photographed individually, as well as in a group with other young people.
There will be loads of good food, great coffee/tea and it should be a really fun day!
Sadly, Play Safe is unable to cover any travel and/or accommodation costs that you incur to take part in this photoshoot. You will receive a $150 Visa gift card as a thank you for your time.
Because we’re organising a photoshoot, we need to get a sense of what you look like to ensure we feature people that embody the diversity of young people across NSW.
Great question! Once we have received all expressions of interest, we will reach out to everyone by Friday 2 June 2023 to let them know the outcome of their submission.
Remember, we’re hoping to find people that truly embody the diversity of young people across NSW. So, if you’re not selected, it’s not because we don’t love your look, we just want to make sure that everyone is represented in some way.
