Alumni Awards 2016

The Alumni Awards are selected by a renowned former student of the School of Art with a  renowned professional connection to the profession of illustration or animation. These awards are selected on the afternoon the private view, and are in the sole gift of the alumni without reference to academic performance or staff comment.

This year we welcomed back the renowned illustrator Ian Pollock to select these awards. Pollock as he is known, is  recognised across the world for his work for clients including the RSCRoyal Mail, Rolling Stone and most recently his Grammy nominated collaboration with Vaughan Oliver on packaging of ‘Indie Cindy’ for The Pixies.

Two awards are given one for Illustration and one for Animation.
