About the Award

The Hong Kong Outstanding Students Artist Award (OSA Award) was established in 2015. This year is the third series of the award, with each series taking place once every two years.

The OSA Award was founded by a diverse group of professionals in the art industry. The aim is to encourage students to develop their individuality and creativity by putting an emphasis on experimentation and the process of creating. Student portfolios are an integral part of the selection. The jury panel consists of art practitioners and educators from a variety of creative fields.

The Student Artists Exhibition creates a platform where students from different schools are able to participate in the exchange of ideas. Eventually, this creative exchange can continue through the OSA Alumni community.

Prizes and Awards

Besides “The Outstanding Student Artist Award”, this year we have introduced “The Outstanding Student Art Leader Award” to praise the best student artist who is not only talented in arts, but also has a holistic enthusiasm and vision that can enable him/ her to manage changes and embrace innovation with great potential in becoming future leader in the art industry.

​“The Best Outstanding Student Artists” and “The Outstanding Student Art Leader” will each receive HK$20,000 sponsorship for a trip to Venice for the “58th Venice Biennale”.  In addition, the nominators and the schools of “The Best Outstanding Student Artists” and “The Outstanding Student Art Leader” will receive a cash prize of HK$1000 and trophies respectively to recognise their support to the OSA Award.
