Are you still studying? Yes? Excellent. At the beginning of this year we launched our Student of the Month feature, after a small break (schools-out etc, etc) we’re back! And we are very, very excited about what the student populace has been up to. At the end of each month we will be selecting a student to showcase – any level of education, any discipline, and from anywhere in the world. It’s probably you, actually.
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.

– your full name

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.
