Connected – Inclusive – Respected

Founded more than thirty-five years ago, the ATOM Awards cater to screen media creators of all ages, and have established themselves as a mainstay of both the education and screen industry sectors.


Recognising the achievements of students

Designed by teachers, the ATOM Awards provide an opportunity for students to explore their interests in a meaningful way, while learning new skills as media creators and becoming discerning consumers of media.

Finalists and winners of the Awards have the chance to engage a vast audience, network with industry professionals and be recognised for their efforts.

Media Arts and more

Media Arts plays a significant role in the Australian Curriculum. The ATOM Awards offer a very effective way to meet learning outcomes in this subject, and to address cross-curriculum priorities.

Through their participation, students can develop skills such as collaboration, creativity, communication and critical thinking.
