Since the SDC International Design Competition was first launched in 2002, literally thousands of students have entered, and we’re now open to entries for the 2015 competition. We’re often asked for advice and tips from students and tutors on what the judges are looking for, so we’ve taken a lighthearted look at how to ensure your entry stands out from the crowd.
Paul Santokhi reports on this event.
The Ireland heat of the competition was held at NCAD in Dublin on the 20th June, very kindly hosted by Rachel Tuffy.
Material World took place in June 2014 at the Houses of Parliament in London and hosted the UK final of SDC’s International Design Competition. You can read about the design competition finalists and their work here, but in addition, the event (which had been fully booked for several weeks), brought together representatives from the UK textile industry, academia and parliament, to highlight and discuss the challenges and opportunities for the textile industry in the UK.
