Westminster Kingsway College student wins V&A Graphic Gathering competition

Friday 24 February 2017

Westminster Kingsway College Level 3 Art and Design students took part in the V&A Graphic Gathering competition with a brief set by BBC Radio 1 this year, with Sara Martinez winning first prize.

Graphic Gathering is the V&A’s annual graphic design challenge for school students. Running for five years now, the competition is designed to give students a taste of professional practice and help prepare them for higher or further education and work in the creative industries through answering a live brief.

Each year the V&A set the brief to focus on a different area within Graphic Design from digital to print. Previous briefs have looked at typography, illustration and visual communication. The focus of this year’s challenge was to work with digital platforms.

 

 

BBC Radio 1 is a mainstream music radio station that caters to audiences aged between 15-29 years of age. The students had to create one piece of original artwork that illustrates and promotes the BBC Radio 1 ‘New Music Friday’ playlist. This piece of artwork will be shared on Radio 1’s social media accounts (Facebook/Twitter/Instagram) in April nationwide.

Over 250 students entered the competition and the College had 3 of the final shortlisted students who had to pitch their ideas to the judging panel at the Victoria and Albert Museum. Westminster Kingsway College student Sara Martinez won overall first prize, while students Kestuan Baptiste Peters and Nazifa Shahjahan were both highly commended.
