I just stumbled across this initiative run by the Boat Builders Yard which is a bar/cafe in South Warf, Melbourne. I've actually been here before and its in a prime location and does some awesome food and drinks!

What It Is
‘The Illume Initiative’ is a project that has been created for art, photography and design students who are looking to get exposure and real work experience in Melbourne.
The aim of the project is to create a design for the windows of the outdoor bar at The Boatbuilders Yard. The successful design will be printed on vinyl and backlit so that when the bar is closed the artwork is illuminated and projected into the venue.
The successful applicant will receive $1,000 cash and have their artwork displayed on approx. 20sq. meters of highly visible space (see above image) for six months. All costs of materials and installation of the artwork will be paid for by The Boatbuilders Yard.
The event will be held twice a year and short-listed applicants will have the opportunity to present their concepts and designs to representatives from The Boatbuilders Yard.
To apply you must be currently enrolled at a University or TAFE.
This rounds applications open on the 1st of June 2013 and close on 31st August 2013.
To apply, please send a portfolio of 4 pieces of existing work and an A3 concept design of what you would like to create, to email@example.com
