Are you a Year 11 or 12 student thinking of pursuing a career in Arts and Design? The University of Canberra (UC) has a creative competition you need to enter.
Bringing back the UC Creative Competition, UC is making the jump to university easier by offering free Faculty of Arts and Design (FAD) tuition for a year.
The twelve-month study grant plus $500 in cash is just one of the prizes available to Year 11 and 12 students as part of this year’s UC Creative Competition.
Run in partnership with Adobe, the competition allows ACT and NSW college students to showcase their skills in several creative disciplines including writing, design, digital media and more.
By offering an alternative pathway into university, UC hopes that the competition can ease some of the stress students and parents are facing during the uncertainty of lockdown.
Other major prizes in the UC Creative Competition include three full semester study grants, cash prizes, Adobe subscriptions and merchandise as well as a mentoring session with Adobe experts.
Executive Dean of FAD Professor Jason Bainbridge said joining the competition would benefit any senior high school student who is considering a career in the creative industries, from Creative Writing to Architecture.
“A career in the arts can take you to so many places across different sectors – and our faculty produces job-ready graduates with great starting salaries,” he says.
“It really is the place to be for those considering a career in any of the creative industries.”
For the young creatives looking to enter the competition, submissions can include new creative work or a previous project, including school assignments.
Need some inspo? A gallery is available on the UC Creative Competition website, showcasing some of the best entries from the 2020 competition.
To enter, participants can submit their work via the online submission form. Submissions close Monday 27 September and winners will be announced on Wednesday 10 November.
