Artwork competition

2022 Excellence Academy Art Competition Winner

The 2022 Excellence Academy Artwork Competition accepted submissions from a range of different mediums, including written, audio, and visual format. It was fantastic to once again see such a rich variety of pieces submitted by students, which was a pleasure for our judge, Karen Annett-Thomas, Assistant Director of the La Trobe Art Institute, to review.

Now that the competition has closed, a winning piece has been selected. A painting submitted by Excellence Academy member, Lalthan Hlawnceu.

Lalthan is a second-year student studying a Bachelor of Biomedicine at the Bundoora campus. In their spare time, they enjoy listening to audio books, podcasts and watching movies, and of course painting. They are also passionate about creating change in society and volunteer in the community and at a local church.

Please find Lalthan’s winning submission below.
