Celebrating the next generation of UAL Awarding Body creatives.

Welcome to Origins Creatives 2022! UAL Awarding Body’s annual celebration of student achievement.

Origins Creatives is an opportunity for students, teachers and families to come together and celebrate their creativity and hard work, and to be inspired by their peers. 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 and Performing Arts.

This year, we are very excited to be holding both an in-person exhibition and online showcase. Building from the varied experiences of Origins Creatives over the last few years, this blended approach is reflective of the times that we live in and will allow a greater diversity of audiences to access and enjoy the incredible work of students studying our qualifications.

The online showcase

Like 2021, the online showcase will contain:

  • The online gallery - A selection of 2D artworks, with links to student websites and portfolios
  • The Youtube playlist - A selection of moving image works: video, documentary and film
  • Soundcloud - Let the sound of UAL Awarding Body musicians be your soundtrack of the summer

Submission guidelines

The submission window for this year is from: 16 May to 17 June 2022

Please read the submission guidelines and the terms and conditions.

We want to celebrate all students during Origins Creatives. Even if your work is not selected for the showcase, there are still ways to get involved and share your work.

Other ways to get involved

Origins Provocations

A series of provocations to stimulate, agitate and disrupt the every day, and to illuminate and draw attention to alternative jump-off points for creative practice.

We would love to see what you have created with the provocations. Share your creations by tagging us in photos or videos on Instagram by using the hashtag #OriginsProvocations
