Endless creative potential

Artists will have access to Tilt Brush, a cutting edge artistic tool developed by Google, to produce their VR masterpiece. Tilt Brush lets you paint in 3D space with three-dimensional brush strokes, stars, light, and even fire. The room is your canvas. Your palette is your imagination. The possibilities are endless. Our team will teach a workshop on how to use these tools so that you have what you need to let your talent shine.

  • Who is organising the competition?

    The organisation behind the competition is the Noosa Creative Technology Association. Our members are Noosa-based professionals who have benefited from professional careers in the creative technology industry and our mission is to help Noosa become a centre of excellence for the development and use of creative technology and content.

    We do so by inspiring, organising and supporting the local technology community through talent identification, skills development and employment initiatives.

    The competition is proudly supported by the Noosa Council, CQ University Noosa, SAIL (the St Andrews Institute of Learning), Beachcity Group, J2 Coworking and Regional Development Australia - Sunshine Coast.

  • How does the competition work?

    Art students from each participating high school will be selected by their Art faculty and entered into the competition. After viewing an introduction to the tools, artists will be allocated a timeslot to use the VR Art Studio for producing their work. This will happen over a three week period in May 2017. At the end of the competition period, the panel of judges will adjudicate on the entries and select the winning art works. A prizegiving function, attended by student artists, dignitaires, parents and other guests, will be held on Thursday, 8th June 2017. Selected works from the competition will be placed on public display in the Noosa Regional Art gallery.
