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's Bright Awards competition is designed to highlight young creative talent and support the arts in high schools across Australia in years 10-12.
Submissions for the 2023 Bright Awards are now closed, and this year it has been bigger and better than ever. You could win a 50% scholarship to study design, plus, your school can now win $5,000. Add to that, we have partnered with Adobe as a major sponsor and they're giving our nine category finalists Creative Cloud licences. You can find out more about the submission criteria and prizes here.
Over the past four years, we have had over 300 entrants and 100 schools participate in the competition and have awarded nearly $100,000 in prizes.
Design is a unique industry, and provides the opportunity to work from anywhere, which sets students up for a truly global career option. The creative application to technology is changing how we create and design systems, homes and solve challenges, including environmental issues. Now is the perfect time to take your first step towards a career in design and creative technology. If you're a teacher, there are 5000 reasons to have your entire class submit an entry.
