Alternative Selfie Competition

The ‘selfie’ is a great example of a modern-day self-portrait, or a piece of work that an artist produces of themselves. Selfies don’t have to be photographs – they can take many forms, from a painting or sculpture, to an animation or film.

Your challenge is to think of a unique way to represent yourself using any medium. Upload your entry before 31st May 2018 and you could be in with the chance of winning an iPad Pro!

The Prizes

Up for grabs we have an Apple Ipad Pro & Pencil, a Go Pro Camera and creative art materials! The top entries will also be exhibited at the UK’s number one specialist university for the creative industries, UCA.

Who can enter?
