The Digital Art Competition was organised for the second time by the Vocational and Applied Programmes Unit within the Ministry for Education, Sport, Youth, Research and Innovation. The aim of this competition was to promote digital artwork while raising awareness about the different forms of digital art. Students from Year 1 to Year 11, attending state and non-state schools, were invited to submit a digital artwork. They were to choose one of three themes being architecture, patterns, and people.
Around hundred students participated in this initiative whereby various forms of digital art were used. Submissions varied from digital drawings, photographs, collages, and illustrations.
Following are the students who placed in the first three places, in each of the four categories. While the names of the best three submissions are listed, for us ALL PARTICIPANTS ARE WINNERS. All submissions can be viewed online on the Media Literacy Facebook page (https://rb.gy/uimf5l).
