Share Your Creativity Competition

Share your creativity with us and we’ll share our digital storytelling skills with you!

Can you help us inspire our current Creative Arts and Industries students as they navigate their career paths during these uncertain times? We would love to share examples of how those who have gone before them are laying the course for their own journey as changemakers.

How to enter

All we need from you is a quick video response (max 90 seconds) responding to the following three questions:

  1. How did you first get started getting your creative vision and project ideas out there? 
  2. How are you applying your creative skills to make a difference in the world?
  3. How or why is this an inspiring time to be a creative changemaker and what are some of the exciting developments within your sector right now?

Visit the FutureMakers showcase for some inspiration from other Creative Arts and Industries alumni carving out their own creative entrepreneurial journeys.

We’ll be sharing your video responses online with our newest alumni. Don’t worry about being word-perfect or editing any pauses or stumbles, rough and ready is fine!


The winning entrant will have the opportunity to work with us on their own showcase video to help spread the word on their creative brand, product, or service. We also have a host of prizes including inspirational books and delectable chocolates for three runners up.  

Competition dates

Please submit your entries to us by Tuesday 3 November 2020.

The winning entry will be announced Tuesday 10 November 2020.
