Introducing Sunshine Arts Fest
Get creative to win your share of the $5,000 prize pool!
We are excited to announce that Sunshine Plaza is launching Sunshine Arts Fest in 2023!
The competition will offer six high schools from across the Sunshine Coast and Noosa regions the chance to compete for a part of a $5,000 prize pool, by creating art installations with a difference at Sunshine Plaza.
Each artwork will need to incorporate an element of augmented reality (AR), with props and face-to-face workshops provided for each successful school to guide students and teachers through the use of this exciting technology.
Sunshine Arts Fest also offers schools the opportunity to collaborate across a range of faculties — from visual arts, graphic design and design tech right through to metal work, IT and even fashion design – the sky is the limit and we look forward to a diverse spectrum of installations.
The artworks will be judged by our experts according to predefined criteria; as well as by the general public through online voting, so schools are encouraged to incorporate an element of storytelling in their installation.
For a chance to be part of this exciting new initiative, we encourage teachers to register their school’s interest now, by completing the Expression of Interest below.
There are only 6 spots available for year one of this competition and entries will open in early 2023. After completing the below form, you will receive additional information regarding the competition along with your invitation to the official launch on Wednesday, 15 February 2023.
