Cardinals Create

What is Cardinals Create?

Cardinals Create seeks to gather and highlight the academic, creative, and artistic works of students, faculty, and staff.  The Showcase encourages entries across the range of multi-modal works, such as video, audio, graphic design, illustration, photo, and more. 

Each semester, a select group of projects will be displayed in the Digital Media Suite's digital gallery in Ekstrom Library.  Select works will also be displayed in the Cardinals Create online gallery.

Each spring, a Cardinals Create Showcase will be held in in person to recognize all the submitted projects.  Also at this Showcase, the best works for the year will be selected by a group of students, faculty, and staff for special recognition and awards.  

Why should I submit?

The Cardinals Create Showcase provides students with the opportunity to an expanded audience, the UofL community and the world at large.  Works included in the Showcase may be shown in the Featured Works on the Digital Media Suite's digital displays.  Creators also gain publication credits for their resumes.

How do I submit?

  • Submissions to the Cardinals Create Showcase are completed through the form linked below.  Creators must complete the form, as well as digitally sign the Media Release.  This allows the University to store and display the work through the Showcase.
