Pulse Perspectives 2022

An exhibition celebrating the artworks of students who completed Year 12 Visual Arts in 2021.

This year we are doing things differently. With the unpredictable nature of COVID-19, we want to ensure nothing gets in the way of your students’ submissions for Pulse Perspectives 2022, so we are taking the full submission process online. Yes, that’s right, you don’t even have to leave your classroom!

Entries are now open!

Pulse Perspectives 2022 submission process has changed. Read all information carefully.

Your step by step guide

All works will be judged from photographs and videos supplied by schools. Entries not complying with the entry requirements will be ineligible for selection.
