TOPshots 2020–21 exhibition

TOPshots is celebrating Melbourne’s top secondary photomedia students; huge congratulations to 2020 graduates Anika McLean & Samantha Pickering, who were both selected as finalists and will soon be on exhibition at the Monash Gallery of Art!


TOPshots is an annual celebration of emerging photomedia artists at MGA. Established more than a decade ago, this award and exhibition showcase work produced by students who have completed the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) subjects of Art, Media and Studio Arts, and the International Baccalaureate (IB) Visual Arts. These subjects focus differently within the broader course of arts education offered to Victorian secondary school students, making the TOPshots exhibition an exciting overview of different creative trajectories.

The artworks displayed in this exhibition have been selected from a large pool of entries and represent a small sample of the creative talent that emerged out of Melbourne’s high schools in 2020. MGA is proud to have the opportunity to acknowledge the excellence of young photomedia artists in our community while providing a vital platform for these artists to share and exhibit their work.

The exhibition will be available for viewing at MGA as soon as restrictions allow.
