Students in years 11, 12 and 13 are invited to submit their original artwork to newly launched The Bright Awards competition, a Design, Illustration, Photography, Art and Moving Image competition with the aim of recognising and celebrating the emerging digital design talent in New Zealand.
The competition is the result of a partnership between the Media Design School and urs.net.nz.
Artworks submitted to the competition can include a poster, digitally manipulated photograph, digital painting, moving image piece, or a resolution to a design brief.
The judges will select twenty finalists who will have their artwork displayed at The Bright Awards exhibition to be held at Media Design School from 23 September to 4 October. Of those, three winners will be chosen by a panel of industry professionals and announced at the exhibition’s opening event on 23 September.
The winners will receive a prize pack including a Bamboo Digital Drawing Tablet to inspire future creations and a Design Day experience visiting New Zealand's top animation, game development and design studios.
The People’s Choice Award, as voted by visitors to the exhibition, will be announced on 8 October.
