The Creative Generation Excellence Awards in Visual Art recognise and promote excellence in senior visual arts education throughout Queensland state and non-state schools.
An annual exhibition, held in conjunction with the Queensland Department of Education, Training and Employment (DETE), the exhibition showcases the best of the region's senior high school art work.
Previously known as the Education Minister's Awards for Excellence in Art, this program has been conducted annually since 1990 and has helped raise community awareness about the degree of sophistication in concepts, diversity in technical competence, and the high standard of arts education in Queensland secondary schools.
