What would the world be without creativity?

Creativity breeds new ideas that can change society. It coats the world in colour and vibrancy.

Billy Blue College of Design at Torrens University Australia has launched Bright Awards for 2021; a competition designed to highlight young creative talent and support the arts in high schools across Australia. Entries are now open for students in years 10-12 and their school to win monetary prizes to help kick start creative dreams.

We are searching for the most creative, disruptive and innovative minds across Australia.

In 2020, we saw 50 schools participate in the competition with students submitting their Major Work projects. An incredible collection of entries were submitted for judging by a select panel of Billy Blue College of Design academic leaders. The judging panel awarded one winner in each seven categories a cash prize of $1,000 and their high school were also awarded $3,000.

Last year was a little different to previous years for teachers and students, with schools transitioning to online learning due to COVID-19. Design is a unique industry, and provides the opportunity to work from anywhere, which sets students up for a truly global career option. Now is the perfect time to take your first step towards a career in design and creative technology.

The process is just as important as winning. This is a great opportunity for students to follow a brief and to experience a creative submission process. Just visit the entry page for Bright Awards and follow the prompts. You will need to submit your work with a 300 word explanation of your concept, your approach, challenges and include the final outcome. If you’re completing your Major Work project in Year 12 – then timing is perfect. Simply submit this work as your entry, or work on something completely new. Anything that inspires you, will inspire us.
