The Ocean Acidification Art Challenge Prize Giving at the Atrium, Federation Square was full of colour and life on 12 August. The M.C. was Rob Gell, with The Hon. Martin Dixon, Minister for Education presenting the awards totalling $50,000 in school environmental and student study grants.

Funded by Peter Hannan Eye on the World Natural Images and established by the Ocean Ark Alliance, the show demonstrated an outstanding display of artwork by Victorian Students Years 9 – 12. All 15 finalists displayed a deep appreciation of the topic and rich diversity of the ocean. It’s great to see the incredible amount of passion today’s students and future leaders have for ocean issues and the environment.

The Grand Prize Winner was Ingrid Lee-Scott from Melbourne Girls College. 2nd Prize, Sarah McColl-Gausden, Methodist Ladies’ College. 3rd Prize, Amy Webb, Laverton P-12 College.

Also highly commended were Phoebe Markoulis, Surfcoast Secondary College, Lachlan Turk, Warringa Park School and Chloe Janetzki, Horsham College.

The Bayplay and Oceanic People’s Choice Award also went to the Grand Prize Winner.

Thank you again to all the students, schools and organisations who have worked tirelessly to make this happen. Our paintbrushes and the ocean’s future are in better hands because of this!
