The Verge Awards is one of USU’s greatest spectacles on the calendar, aiming to recognise and support our creative student members across a number of disciplines and styles. A total of $10,000 in prize money is awarded to winning applicants, judged by both industry professionals and by fellow students via an online voting system.Each year, the Verge Awards attract an ever-increasing and ever-impressive collection of entries. In 2014, Verge received a diverse range of entries across 8 categories, showcasing the brilliant imagination and diversity residing on our campus. Sculpture, jewellery, visual art, photography, multi-media, short film, poetry, prose and classical and popular music composition were just some of the many creative outlets that added to the richness of the Verge Awards exhibition. The Verge Awards are an opportunity for all student artists from all campuses and faculties of the University of Sydney to expose their work to industry professionals and the local community.
