  • develop their passion for photography by addressing a topical theme;
  • have their work selected to be displayed in a public gallery;·
  • attend an exhibition opening and prize giving night with industry professionals and meet with young budding photographers;·

Participants win prizes for: best representation of the theme; best image composition; most original photograph; and digital darkroom (image editing techniques);·

Tour ACU’s visual arts facilities and see the Bachelor of Visual Arts and Design Graduate Show in the ACU Gallery. This year the theme is ‘Freedom’ and the 2015 Pixel Prize encourages students to use their creativity to express what Freedom means to them.

Celebrating diversity and recognizing student achievement, the Pixel Prize Opening Night promises to be an enjoyable evening for all.
