EQUS Quantum Art Competition 2021

Submit your quantum art for a chance to win $500!

After a "fascinating and partially bamboozling" 2020 Quantum Art Competition, we're back for another year!  Visual, audio, written—any kind of art is welcome, as long as it connects with the weird and wonderful world of quantum.

The competition is open from 7 July to 4 August, with the shortlisted entries announced and showcased during National Science Week (14–22 August 2021).  Voting for the People's Choice Prize will also take place during National Science Week.

So get out those Planck canvasses.  Create something ionic.  We’re hoping it’ll be a photon finish!

This competition is open to anyone not affiliated with EQUS.  The artwork must have been created specifically for the 2021 EQUS Quantum Art competition.  By entering, you agree to grant EQUS non-exclusive rights to use your entry, with appropriate credit, for promotional purposes.

The winner will receive a cash prize of AUD$500.  The deadline for submission is 23:00 AEST, Wednesday 4 August 2021.

Please read the full Terms and Conditions before entering.
