TOPSHOTS: Outstanding photomedia work from VCE Art, Media and Studio Arts students

17 July 2012 to 26 August 2012

It's TOPshots! time again!

This annual exhibition celebrates the best of the photomedia work produced by graduating students of the past year. In this exhibition we'll be displaying the work of the students of 2011. We'll also be displaying their process workbooks and visual diaries so you can see their progress from concept to final work and all the trials inbetween.

Each year MGA receives over a hundred images from VCE Art, Media & Studio Arts students (and in 2011 we also called for entries from IB Visual Arts).
