National Winners!

23rd June 2020
Hillcrest Children Sweep the Board in National Competition!

 

‘See what I see’ was a national prize competition for children aged 5-16, organised jointly by Bath Spa University and The Royal Fine Art Commission Trust.

Entries were assessed by a high profile panel, comprising the esteemed design critic Stephen Bayley, the famous architect Sir Terry Farrell CBE, the award-winning exhibition designer Dinah Casson CBE, and Professor Kyriaki Anagnostopoulou, Head of the School of Education at Bath Spa University.

The judges said they were looking specifically for three things:

  • Creativity – the more creative the better!
  • Critical engagement with your built environment (buildings, landmarks, streets, pedestrian crossings, etc) – they were looking for thoughtful submissions, that demonstrated that you have reflected on your surroundings and have really thought about how the built environment around you might be enhanced.
  • Imaginative design solutions that solve a problem or improve your surroundings – set your imagination free! Take creative risks and tell us, through your submission, how you would re-make the world around you into a better place to live, work and thrive.

JASPER in Year 3 won First Prize in the 5 - 8 age group!

JET in Year 5 won First Prize in the 9 - 12 age group and was the overall competition winner!
