Screen Queensland and Queensland Rugby League have partnered for the first time to create this unique opportunity – and access to the stories of the women who give their hearts, souls and bodies for the pride of our state. The aim is to create a landmark series telling the stories behind the Harvey Norman Queensland Maroons as they strive for Women’s State of Origin glory in the coming twelve months.

For this initiative, we called out for female identifying Queensland residents who are producers, directors, writers, editors and crew.
