HyperVision applications for 2017 are now closed.

HyperVision is a youth art competition created and run by the Hyper Team in the City of Swan. Each year we invite artists to submit work across photography, sculpture, traditional media, fashion/jewellery, short film, and experimental categories for a chance to win amazing prizes and be exhibited in our pop-up gallery at Midland Gate Shopping Centre.

HyperVision: Instability asks artists to submit works that outline their views on the community, their own personal relationships, and what they deem as stable and unstable in their own lives.

Short films must be under 5 minutes and respond to the 'Instability' theme. Please link to your video in your artwork description and provide a thumbnail or title screen as the attachment.

Any WA resident aged between 12 and 25 who would like their artwork exhibited at HyperVision is encouraged to apply now.

Finalist artwork will be exhibited at Midland Gate Shopping Centre for three weeks from 3 July to 23 July and will be on display to over 250,000 people a week. There will be major prizes awarded for each category and an overall winner will take home the grand prize of $1,000 cash, courtesy of Midland Gate Shopping Centre.

To apply please submit an application form and a scanned image or photograph of your artwork by 4pm, Thursday 1 June via the HyperVision website: http://www.hyperfest.com.au/HyperVision, or contact Simon O’Leary via simon.oleary@swan.wa.gov.au or 0409 895 251.
