Student artists showcased in National Campus Art Prize

10 Nov 2015

Congratulations to Melbourne Polytechnic students Franck Pasquier, Roseanne Nettleton, and Gen Hagiwara for their outstanding results in the 2015 National Campus Art Prize!

Melbourne Polytechnic recently hosted the National Campus Art Prize, the premier tertiary art competition in Australia, at our Prahran campus. The competition has been running since 1984, and is open to any student at a participating AACA campus. With a focus on participation rather than elitism, the competition aims to uncover hidden talents in students in any discipline.

Our students won placings out of a strong field of 50 finalists. First prize in each category was awarded $500, second place won $300 and third place received $200.
