2011 Student Competition
In the frame: reflections on art, design and media higher education

Competition now open, closing date for entries is Friday, 8 April 2011

What is higher education in art, design and media subjects like in 2011?  What are its defining characteristics, experiences, environments, practices and moments?

ADM-HEA invites students on UK-based art, design or media higher education courses to enter this year’s competition. This year we are asking students to submit an image (visual / audio / film / etc) accompanied by a short statement that reflects their perceptions and experiences of higher education.
