About CQU Creates

CQUniversity Australia is pleased to sponsor CQU Creates 2018, an annual visual arts prize now in its fifth year.

The competition is open to current and past students and staff of CQUniversity and its antecedent institutions, including the CQ TAFE.

The CQU Creates annual art exhibition was first held in 2014 and allows CQUniversity to connect with past and present students and staff and promote their unique artistic talents.

CQU Creates is a touring exhibition that visits and celebrates the regions within the University’s Central Queensland footprint.

CQUniversity students and staff (past and present) are invited to submit their entries for the annual exhibition from 1 - 2 June 2018.
