PSC's 'Inspire' Photo Competition Awards Ceremony in conjunction with Kayell Australia was held on Wednesday, 8 December. The competition was open to all current Year 11 - 12 students, exploring a place, feeling or memory that inspired them during 2021. We were delighted to welcome all our winners, alongside their family and friends, to our South Melbourne campus.
PSC's Wellness Walks led by our Librarian, Wellness and Student Support, Jill Bartholomeusz appears to have had a lasting impact on our students, and the wider City of Melbourne community. These little excursions cover local photography and art galleries, civic centres, libraries, national parks and gardens, and markets.
Last week, one of our new Bachelor of Photography (mid-year intake) students, Jecerey Miranda, was so inspired by PSC's Wellness Walk to the South Melbourne Market, that he started an online journal and website documenting his experience.

PSC's Bachelor of Photography second year student Pearce Leal has been shortlisted for the Photo Collective's Stories Awards. The work is from his class assignment 'Common in Folklore' about the decline of the Australian flying fox due to climate collapse.
"This project investigates the ecology of the flying fox. The work is presented in a traditional documentary framework and slips into a contemplative space in an attempt to draw correlations between the daily routine of the flying foxes and humans," Pearce said in his artist statement.
Pearce joined PSC to explore new fields of photography, and expand his knowledge of the medium, after working as a photography tour guide and teacher for image-making enthusiasts.
Congratulations to PSC's Part-Time Advanced Diploma of Photography final year student Steve Womersley for having his work shortlisted to be in the running for the Global Billboard Project! The winning photographers will have their images on billboards on New York's 9th Avenue later this year!
The Global Billboard Project aims to beautify city skylines one billboard at a time by offering photographers from all around the world the opportunity to be selected to display their winning photo on a Manhattan billboard for five days each.
Following overwhelming demand from applicants, the Bachelor of Photography mid-year start date has been extended by one week from 21 June to 28 June 2021. The catalyst for this extension has come as a result of Melbourne's recent 2-week lockdown – resulting in a backlog of interviews for applicants and face-to-face tours at the College's modern South Melbourne campus.
So take advantage of the extra week and get your applications in NOW! We are currently interviewing and booking campus tours. Make 2021 count as the year you got started on your creative career!
