Previous exhibitors, apart from putting on an amazing exhibition:

  • earned cash prizes - we will have a number of prizes available this year!
  • sold their work (and a number continue to be stocked by us)
  • used the information on their C.V’s to obtain other commissions and exhibitions
  • was used by students as part of their professional practice and personal development
  • networked with other creative practitioners
