Here’s a beautiful new portrait of Teresa showing her support for the ongoing postal vote in Australia to legalize same-sex marriage. The image is part of a group of Australian celebrities (including Teresa’s good friend, Phoebe Tonkin) that have come together to support ELLE Australia’s #ELLEIsForLove campaign.

ELLE AUSTRALIA – Starting from the 12th of September, and running all the way to the 7th of November, Australia is conducting one of the most important, and most highly-contested votes in its history: a postal vote to legalise same-sex marriage.

After a frustrating back-and-forth regarding plebiscites and impassioned floor speeches, Australian’s government decided that a postal survey—a non-compulsory, mail-in vote—would decide whether or not a private member’s bill would be introduced on the topic (which would legalise same-sex marriage, if passed, which it is expected to). The ballots have been mailed out, and every registered Aussie is being asked the very same question, one at a time, “Should the law be changed to allow same-sex couples to marry?”

But despite the simplicity of the question, and the same simplicity in your choice of answers—“Yes,” or “No”—the vote isn’t so straightforward as we’d hoped it would be.

In between a vexing response from the ‘Vote No’ crowd, which has since spouted several public disavowals of the cause—skywriting ‘Vote NO’ across Sydney’s skyline recently might have been the most unabashed—and the fact that the vote itself is non-compulsory and not promising of any fines or reprimands like a state or federal election, and the end result is certainly not as promising as it could have been.

But luckily, for every ‘Vote No,’ voice there is an equal, and more hopeful, ‘Vote YES!’ Sydney’s Martin Place lit up with rainbow banners, and a heartening bulk of Australia’s biggest companies and brands have thrown their support behind marriage equality.

ELLE Australia is there alongside them. To show our support for same-sex marriage, we’ve asked some of Australia’s best and brightest to join in and encourage every voter to vote yes! For this special project, we tapped six incredible artists, including Luke Arnold, Ollie Henderson, Miranda Skoczek, Kitty Callaghan, Just Sayin’ Girl and Bassike to design their own slogan on white t-shirt. We then called upon some ELLE friends, including Phoebe Tonkin, Teresa Palmer, and Zoë Foster Blake (and more), to be photographed in the tees. These portraits are appearing in our October issue, on stands Monday.

And you, too, can get involved. Head over to our Instagram (make sure you’re following us), re-post one of the shots, tag it #ELLEisforLove, tell us why you’re voting, and you can go in the running to win one of the tees! Head over here for all the details, including terms and conditions.

Remember, guys, this is a hugely important vote, with wide-reaching consequences that will affect millions of Australians. Now’s the time to get involved and get it right.

Vote, vote, vote! Vote YES!
