The ME in Mental Health

Congratulations to the winners of the Mental Health Month Art Competition!

Students from across UNSW were invited to submit entries for a digital visual art exhibition as part of the Mental Health Month 2023 program run by the UNSW Health Promotions Unit during Week 6-8 of Term 3. The winning works will have opportunity to be reproduced as postcards and digital assets for mental health support.

An initiative from the UNSW Health Promotions Unit, the competition has been created to highlight diverse perspectives and experiences around mental health using student voices and ideas. 

One winning work will be awarded $1000, and three highly commended works will each receive $250! All of the works will be eligible for the People’s Choice Award of $250, chosen by student vote (total prize pool $2000).

Visit the exhibition page to see all of the entries!

The judging panel was very pleased by the overall standard of entries, and recognised that the winning work showed considerable conceptual artistic merit, and was an understated message of self-care and compassionate support through creative expression. The artist of the winning work was awarded $1000, and artists of three highly commended works each received $250. The prizes were funded by UNSW Health Promotions Unit. 

Winner: Matti 100,000 Marks of Anxiety
