Each year, Queensland state and non-state schools offering senior visual art are invited to submit up to four students' artworks into the Creative Generation Excellence Awards in Visual Art program.
In 2018, 447 submissions from 183 schools were received, with the teacher selection panel shortlisting 77 artworks. These were presented to the state selection panel who selected 38 excellence award recipients and 7 regional encouragement award recipients.
Certificates of excellence, regional encouragement and commendation were presented to students at their regional exhibitions held throughout Queensland between August to October 2018.
At the recent central exhibition launch at the Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane, our program's corporate partner QSuper announced the winner of their 'Sponsors Choice Award' as Fern Callis of Cairns State High School for her work ‘Necessities'.
Congratulations to the following awardees:
