Emerging creative talent from East Anglia’s schools and colleges was celebrated at Norwich University of the Arts last week as the winners of this year’s Norfolk Art & Design Competition were revealed. Seb Green from Norwich School was highly commended for his video entry, with praise from Professor John Last, Vice-Chancellor of Norwich University of the Arts, that “the maturity and subtlety of the animation would not look out of place in year 1 or 2 animation degree course.”
Andy Campbell, Design/Creative Projects Co-ordinator at Norwich School, said it was “a good evening of strong work from across the county.” There were two other pieces of work by Norwich School pupils, which were short-listed to be included in the exhibtion: jewellery by Carissa Huang and a table by Matilda Warde-Aldam.
The competition was open to all sixth form and college students in the region - and this year’s contest saw 120 entries from 20 institutions. The short-listed entries will be on display at to Holkham Hall (26 July-29 August) and at Great Yarmouth Library (4-6 September).
Professor John Last, Vice-Chancellor of Norwich University of the Arts, said: “This competition celebrates the creativity of the next generation of artists, makers and creators in East Anglia. We’ve been struck by both the high standard of work this year and the range of ideas, formats and media students have used.”
Congratulations to all involved.
