City of Bristol College graphic design students have been competing against each other once again in their quest for the award of The Stanley Hooper Memorial trophy.
This year's winner was first year student, Georgia Mccall who had put a great deal into her interpretation of the brief, achieving a well deserved result. She received a cheque from the IP3 West of England branch. The trophy is now on display at the College. The presentations were made at Leonard Lane Gallery, Bristol on Friday 24th June 2016.
The Hooper award includes IP3 subsidised membership and work experience at one of the sponsoring companies, Bristol News and Media, of whom Creative Manager Gary Burt has rendered his customary wisdom and experience in coming to the final selection.
