Celebrating the next generation of UAL Awarding Body creatives.

Welcome to Origins Creatives 2023! UAL Awarding Body’s annual celebration of student achievement.

Origins Creatives is an opportunity for students, teachers and families to come together and celebrate student creativity and hard work. It brings together student work from across the UAL subject areas of Art and Design, Fashion Business and Retail, Creative Media, Music Performance and Production, Performing Arts, Entry Level 3 in Art and Design and Performing Arts and the Extended Project Qualification.

This year, we are very excited to be returning to the Truman Brewery for an in-person exhibition where guests will be able to enjoy the incredible work of students studying our qualifications.

Origins Creatives 2023


This year, we're inviting submissions from all UAL Awarding Body qualification subject areas for our in-person exhibition and online showcase.

Whether you're submitting an original song, a video of a performance or a piece of artwork, we're looking for the best work your students have produced on our qualifications this year, be that their final major projects or work produced throughout the year. Our curator will then choose a selection of the submitted works to showcase.

The submission window is open from 22 May until 25 June 2023.

To find out more about the requirements for submitting work, such as file formats and sizes, please see our detailed Submission Guidelines (PDF 564KB) document.
