Introduction of OSA Award
The Outstanding Students Artist Award of Hong Kong (OSA Award) was established in 2015. This year is the third series of the award, with each series taking place once every two years.
The OSA Award was founded by a diverse group of professionals in the art industry. The aim is to encourage students to develop their individuality and creativity by putting an emphasis on experimentation and the process of creating. Student portfolios are an integral part of the selection. The jury panel consists of art practitioners and educators from a variety of creative fields.
The Student Artist Group Exhibition creates a platform where students from different schools are able to participate in the exchange of ideas. Eventually, this creative exchange can continue through the OSA Alumni community.
「 Unlike many existing student art awards that give awards based on one particular artwork submission, the OSA Award reviews portfolios of the applicants and select the outstanding entries that reflect the students’ ability, style and creative process as artists. 」
