The Peter Wall Institute is running a student competition for still images/works or performance/video pieces of four to ten minutes on the topic of water.

In September 2013, the Institute will host a conference of University-Based Institutes for Advanced Study, bringing together more than 90 international scholars from around the world to the University of British Columbia. One of the conference panel’s will be discussing the need for cross-disciplinary strategies to deal with the global, financial, ecological and societal issues relating to water. As an accompaniment to this panel, the Institute is awarding up to four student prizes for an arts-based piece on some aspect of water to help showcase these issues. The awarded pieces will be exhibited separately after the panel discussion is complete.

Deadline for proposal submissions is 4:00 pm, April 1, 2013. For more information, please see the application form.
