Scholarship application requirements: 

To apply for the Creativity Scholarship, you must submit 2-3 examples of your work in digital format. These give you an added opportunity to demonstrate your skills, interests and strengths in producing creative, design or digital media content.

These allow students who are creatively excellent but may not have achieved equally high standards or grades in their traditional academic school subjects to present their creative work.

Your Digital Portfolio should be carefully assembled and focused in such a way as to tell us who you are and to demonstrate – through your work - your passion for creativity and design. It should not be a collection of unrelated works and the emphasis should be on quality rather than quantity.

Your Digital Portfolio may include some of the following:

  • Graphic design or photographic work;
  • Fashion drawings, sketchbooks or photographs of garments or prototypes;
  • Video, animation or motion work;
  • Sound design, remixes, or music composition;
  • Interactive work (ie. websites, apps, games);
  • Any other example of your chosen creative works in digital format.

Most importantly, your Digital Portfolio should be structured and/or narrated to explain exactly the work you are showing. It should not be left to the viewer to try and work out what the video contains. Ultimately, your digital portfolio should portray you, and your creative accomplishments, as worthy of an RMIT scholarship for creative excellence.

Format: The Digital Portfolio (Design) will consist of either a video file (max 3 minutes) or other digital files (portolio size to be 30 MB or less). It must contain a title page (Digital Creative Portfolio) and clearly include your name. Your Digital Creative Portfolio should be uploaded to an online platform (such as Vimeo, YouTube) or any other online repository (Google Drive, etc) and a link provided. Submissions will not be accepted in any other way than online. 

Note: All portfolio work must be original and created by the candidate
