The UTS Media Arts and Production Program emphasises ideas, creativity, innovation and excellence and we look upon the Golden Eye Awards as a way to recognise work which reflects this emphasis. The Golden Eyes showcase the cream of its students’ work and many a Golden Eye finalist has gone on to receive critical and festival success.
Apart from encouraging new and emerging talent and creativity, the Golden Eyes are also vitally important as a bridge between institution and industry. A wide range of industry practitioners and organisations are invited to the screenings and the event enables students to develop links and connections with the world beyond the university.
Prizes are awarded to outstanding works in various categories of moving image, sound and new media. The winners of the different categories are chosen by experienced industry practitioners.
