SUCCESS ILLUSTRATES TALENT OF LINCOLN STUDENTS

 

Students at the Lincoln School of Art and Design have snapped up two out of ten honours at the forthcoming British Design and Art Direction Awards.

 

Illustration student Nat Everard (20) from Essex has been nominated for an award which he will collect at a ceremony on 25th June at the Commonwealth Institute in London.

 

And Wellingore-based student illustrator Caroline Burgess (22) is to be included in the 2002 Student Annual which will be launched at the same event.

 

“This is a major success and the students and course team should be congratulated on achieving such national recognition,” said Howard Pemberton, subject leader for Illustration at the Lincoln School of Art and Design.

 

“The D&AD Student Awards are the premier awards and showcase for design students in Europe,” Mr Pemberton added.

 

“Around 10 students are chosen for the Illustration section of the awards scheme each year, so the Illustration course in Lincoln has taken 20 per cent of the awards!”

 

British Design & Art Direction (D&AD) is a professional association and charity representing the UK’s thriving design and advertising communities.

 

Each year the D&AD Student Awards give undergraduates their first taste

of the design business and a chance to take on with real-life briefs from major clients.

 

These briefs are then judged in collaboration with practitioners from the advertising and design industries.

 

From 2,000 entries worldwide 180 are featured in the Student Annual, 90 are nominated for awards, 26 are named as winners and one is named student of the year.
