JOLT: 24 Hour Arts Competition

What is on offer?

As the youth of 2016, we are at the mercy of the incredible power of social media. Join us as we harness that power and create a national outlet for artists of all genres to engage with other creative-minded artists, network with people within the industries, and have their work celebrated and shared.

On April 8, make sure you’re subscribed to our various social media platforms as we release the exclusive theme for this year’s Jolt competition. Muster up all the creativity in your art-inclined souls and produce an original piece of work within 24 hours inspired by the theme. These works of art will be displayed throughout National Youth Week, culminating on April 15 when the winning submissions from each genre will be announced and awarded with art-related prizes!

For only $10, you can join Courthouse Youth Arts and gain free entry into the 2016 Jolt competition! All genres are accepted for submission, including Dance, Visual Art, Filmmaking, Writing, Poetry, Sculpture, Performance Art, Zine Making, Comic Books, Spoken Word, and Graphic Design. Solo and collaborative works are also welcome.
