Students can win the opportunity to display their artwork in the Tower Courtyard, which will help raise their profile and add experience to their CV. In addition to having their work displayed, the winner will receive £500, second place £250 and third £100.

  • The University and the local community

The participating students and alumni will be asked to provide a brief outline of how the artwork meets the above themes, sketches of artwork, cost of installation including budget breakdown and details of whether they can manufacture the artwork themselves.
