To mark the call for submissions for February’s Student of the Month, we are all doing a little dance in the studio. You can’t see it, unless you log onto your imagination, yeah? So come on, you know the drill by now. Wherever you study, whatever creative discipline (or disciplines) you’re learning to call your own, why not submit your stuff to be feted on our fair website?
We’ve refined the submissions process somewhat so please take a moment to check out the guidelines before emailing through. Any questions can also be sent to the submissions email. Best of luck!
What to submit
You can submit up to two projects a month and these should be what you consider to be your finest work to date. So if it’s a project you made in your first year and you’re now in your second, that’s great, but please remember – you must still be in education to qualify. We’re also open to submissions from students of any discipline, so those of you who aren’t studying at art school, this means you.
Text + Links
– your full name
– full course title

Next, send through a paragraph (of no more then 150 words) about you, your project, and when the work was made (we’ll be back in touch for more information if you are selected.) And, of course, a web link: blog, flickr, tumblr, website – all good.
If you’re submitting a video/moving image piece, please include a link to YouTube or Vimeo.
