Post Card Show Winners

On Thursday 19 January, a private view and prize giving event took place for all the learners who submitted a postcard as part of an exhibition at WMC-The Camden College.

Learner across all subject areas were encourage to submit a postcard on the theme of ‘I am London’.

There were no restrictions on media or material used as long as it was A6 in size and it could be 2D or 3D. Over 100 entries were received and the variety of techniques used included photography, print, drawing, painting, textiles, jewellery, creative writing, graphic design and illustration.

The entries reflected our diverse range of learner’s experiences as a long-term Londoner or as a recent residents. Learners were asked to consider what it’s like in their bit of London, or as a tourist. What they see as the positives and negatives of this city and what is it like as a city to learn in.

The judges had a hard time shortlisting the winners as the quality of entries was fantastic but they whittled it down to seven winners who all won a range of prizes from £10 to £25 in CASS vouchers.

The winners are:

  • Michael Barton
  • Dawn Finn
  • Brian Ellis
  • Henry Cleaver
  • Kai Duckworth
  • Zachary Merle
  • Nesh Mckinley

Anna Marlen-Summers, Curriculum Manager for Art & Design, who organised the exhibition said “We were overwhelmed with the entries received for the ‘I am London’ exhibition. It was fantastic to see such a range of techniques used to create something that is quite small as it’s only an A6 sized postcard but the learners all excelled themselves for this exhibition.

“The comments we have received from those who have come along to see the exhibition has been extremely positive and the learners are so proud to show off their work to their peers and see it hanging up on the wall for all the other learners to see.

“It’s great to see the talents of our learners coming to fruition. I want to thank all the learners who took the time to submit their postcard as each one is fantastic. I’m looking forward to seeing how many entries we receive next year!”
