Since 1990, the program has helped raise community awareness of the degree of sophistication in concepts, diversity of technical competence, and the high standard of visual art education in Queensland secondary schools.
Submissions for the 2019 awards have now closed. The

Guidelines to apply for next year's program will be available in early 2020.
