Calling all artists and illustrators!  

Are you a budding artist looking to get your name out there? Do you love coffee? Are you a current QUT student? Then this opportunity is for you! If you would you like the chance to have one of your very own artworks featured on a coffee cup right here on campus, then keep reading! 

Brewed Awakening and Glass bring you our first ever cup design competition! The Editors here at Glass cannot live without our daily coffees, and we love nothing more than when those coffees come in cute takeaway cups. We also love promoting student creativity, which is why we are hosting this competition with one of QUT’s favourite cafes, Brewed Awakening. 

Participating in this competition is not only a great chance build your portfolio of work, but it’s also a great opportunity to get your name out there! Imagine how cool it would be to see your fellow students walking around campus, enjoying their hot drinks, with your artwork in their hands! 

The winning design will be featured on custom printed cups, with the artists name proudly displayed alongside the Brewed Awakening logo and smiley.  

The competition is open now and closes at 11:59pm Friday 4th August 2023. The winner will be announced during Week 3, Semester 2. Click here to enter!
