Strip Appeal Shortlist

The shortlist has been decided and those who made the list have been contacted.

The standard of submissions was extremely high, so much so that the selection committee decided on a shortlist of 20.

The shortlist reflects the range in innovation and approach that was present across all 100+ submissions.

 

Unfortunately, due to the high level of submissions, we are not able to contact eveyone who entered individually.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your submissions and for sharing your great ideas and design work with us.

 

We are keeping all of your submissions on record as we may ask to use your work at a later date as part of the bookwork or traveling exhibit.

The shortlist will be on display in Enterprise Square Galleries from 12th Dec-18th Jan 2012.

We will also be displaying the shortlist digitally and online using the WAVE technology center.

We hope to be adding more submissions to this format for the public vote after Christmas. You will be contacted if your work is to be included.

 

Thanks again and best regards,

 

Merle and the CRSC Team
