Anthem, part of Ahmad's PSC Masters final project, responds to the growing fear of Muslims in Australia by examining how Muslims are perceived in contemporary Australian society and by exploring the mechanisms of prejudice – how easy it is to make assumptions and establish stereotypes and challenge the perceptions of viewers.

A free exhibition, displaying all shortlisted work, is on display at the Footscray Community Arts Centre until 5 June.
