The Couch PotARTo is awarded in recognition of creativity, innovation, and/or experimentation. This competition is open to all current University of Melbourne Students who submit to the festival, and is awarded every Thursday night. The Couch PotARTo judges panel includes the UMSU Creative Arts officers, members of the Creative Arts Committee and Union House Theatre Staff.
The prize is a gift voucher valued at $50 (or close to that amount, depending on what the voucher is for). Winners get a choice of gift vouchers. We want to encourage the Couch PotARTo winners to use this prize to consume art and support local artists from their home.
