Hi guys! There are a few art prizes calling for entries at the moment. Definitely worth looking in to and getting involved!
National Campus Art Prize 2013
UoN students have their chance to enter The National Campus Art Prize (NCAP) 2013 competition, so get working and submit your painting, photographs, sculpture or fashion item for your chance to be displayed at the national final in Adelaide! Entries close Friday 31 August.
Established in 1984, the National Campus Art Prize (previously National Tertiary Art Prize) is the premier tertiary art competition in Australia. The Prize is open to any student at a participating AACA campus (yes that includes UoN) from any background. The Art Prize attempts to draw out talents which may remain largely hidden otherwise and focuses on participation rather than elitism, so why not have a go?

Photography / Photo-media / Electronic Art (2D and must not exceed 1m square)
