How to enter
Submissions for the Creative Generation Excellence Awards in Visual Art 2019 are now open.
Schools must download and read the 2019 Information for schools booklet carefully prior to submitting into the awards. The booklet contains information on all elements of the program and what is expected of schools and students.
Before finalising the submission, the submitting teacher will be asked to tick a box acknowledging their understanding and acceptance of the program's terms and conditions.
Project consent form
All students participating in the 2019 awards program are required to complete a Creative Generation Excellence Awards in Visual Art 2019 project consent form.
Schools will be required to upload completed forms via the submission portal. Submissions cannot be completed without this form. Please note, the QSuper consent form located within the portal is optional.
Once the submitting teacher, student and their parent/guardian have read the Information for schools booklet and have received the student's completed project consent form, visit the submission portal to submit into the awards.

- The size of the submitted artwork must not exceed 1.8m x 2m x 2m once installed.
- If the artwork has individual components, parts should not exceed 20kg.
- Each submission must be accompanied by a supporting artist statement of no longer than 100 words. The artist statement must be written by the student, be grammatically correct and approved by the teacher submitting the artwork.
- A consent form signed by a parent/guardian must accompany the submission or the artwork cannot be exhibited.
- Any work the department deems to be inappropriate for public viewing will not be accepted, and the program manager will contact the school to discuss the concerns.
- Students must have the permission of the copyright owner of any work that has been reproduced in their artwork before it will be included in exhibitions. If permission has not been obtained, the work cannot be exhibited and the program manager will contact the school to discuss the concerns.
