The Faculty of Arts and Design: Dean's Design Competition

A Competition Made for Creative Year 11 and 12 Students

The Faculty of Arts & Design invites all ACT & NSW College students (Years 11 & 12) to enter the Dean's Design Competition. By submitting an example of your best work in one or more of the categories below, you could win our Grand Prize and receive a $5,000 Faculty scholarship. Cash prizes for winners of each category will be awarded together with a People's Choice Award for the 'most voted' entry.

This is an exciting way to demonstrate your skill. Your submission may even be used to demonstrate your suitability for creative study at UC through our Portfolio Entry option. Find out more about the courses we offer and applying via portfolio entry by visiting our Faculty's website.
