We invite secondary school teachers to nominate their best students to submit up to three artworks each online. A judging panel of local art professionals then shortlist the 20 best artworks to be exhibited in a public space.
The judges complete a round of in-person judging at the Finalists Exhibition and select one artwork to be awarded the Judges Prize.
To increase exposure for the artists, the general public are also invited to cast a vote online or in person for their favourite shortlisted artwork. The most popular artwork will receive the Public Vote Prize.
The winning students receive cash prizes and trophies, while their school art departments also receive cash grants to be used to for the wider benefit of all students and their creative pursuits.
Artworks are sold through silent auction, at the discretion of each student. Sales proceeds are spilt equally between the student and our charitable programmes. Click here to learn more.
All winners from each region are automatically entered into The Global Students Prize.

Nominating students for your local Students Prize is a great way to engage with your community and promote young artistic talent. Schools with winning students also receive cash grants to grow their arts programming.
