Are you a budding young photographer or graphic designer who loves to mix things up and create new styles and messages?
Welcome to the Australian Catholic University’s digital image competition!
The Pixel Prize is open to high school students from Australia (New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland) and from Bangladesh and Sri Lanka who have a passion for photography and graphic design. The Pixel Prize encourages students to address a topical theme through a creative, visual medium. Young image makers will be given the opportunity to connect with a photographic and design community and share their work with friends, family and the public.
This year, the theme is ‘Empathy’. For details regarding the theme, please visit the Theme page.
Awards ceremonies for local winners and finalists will be held in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.
Thank you to all 2016 participants who submitted wonderful photographs reflecting their vision of My Generation and congratulations to our winners and finalists. View the winning photographs on our image gallery. View the winning photographs on our image gallery.
2017 Pixel Prize Theme: Empathy
Contemporary life is full of images because they can tell us a big story in an instant. Sometimes, there’s an image that really shows us something new: that alters our perception and invites us to share in a world unknown, or perhaps strangely familiar to our own. It might challenge us to see a new viewpoint, to change our behaviour or see the beauty in the rhythms of ordinary, everyday life. Art has the capacity to challenge what we think is important or reveal something we never realised before and, therefore, change us forever. The artist creates their story, their thoughts and feelings are folded into their work for the viewer to see, and together they share a connection through the limitlessness of the imaginative process: this is empathy.
The theme of this years’ Pixel Prize is ‘Empathy.’ We invite you to create an original photograph or a digital collage that engages in any way with this theme. Everyone has their own special story, interest or curiosity – share it with us.
