A professional winner, an amateur winner and a runner-up will be selected from each of the categories: animation, music, photography and short film.

Supporting the Creative Community

The 2013 Driven Creativity Competition aims to recognise, promote and reward brilliant work from both established professionals and up-and-coming talent. All entries to the competition, regardless of size or budget, have equal chances to win due to a unique judging process; entries will be judged not only on aesthetic quality, but also on the innovation and drive that went into creating them. With their submissions, entrants also have the opportunity to pull back the curtain on their inspiration for the piece and share how they would use the competition prizes to further their next creative projects.

All of the 2012 winners can be found here.
