Digital artwork competition sparks creativity from the MiniDevs

Mix
The MiniDevs at Newlands Intermediate School recently unleashed their imaginations, creating digital art as part of a recent competition run by Theta's Innovation Lab.

Using Mixiply's new portfolio feature, we asked the students to create digital artwork and upload it into their personal portfolios. In the future, the students can continue to add to their portfolio library and share with fellow students, teachers and parents.  

Jim Taylor has been a driving force behind Mixiply since its inception in 2019. He talks more about the use of the Mixiply platform to store and share digital artwork: 

"The portfolio feature is a space for students to create and share their digital work. They can take it with them when they change schools or move onto college as it’s a personal account. Students can join their schools group to collaborate on projects. " 

And here are the runners up and winners - selected from a phenomenal entry pool! Congratulations and kudos to all the MiniDevs creators. The winners and judges choice recipients all received e-vouchers to spend at their favourite stores.
