Yeah ok so it’s a bit dark and drizzly outside but that just means we’re going to have to work extra hard to brighten up your lives for the next few months and we’re going to start right ruddy here. We’re on the hunt for our October Student of the Month, an exciting, original and engaging young creative working anywhere in the world. So why not send us your work and we’ll select the person who most floats our boat. The closing date is midnight on Wednesday October 31 – good luck!
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
– place of study

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.
