Dorset Arts Prize 2017
The Dorset Arts Prize, launched four years ago by The Bournemouth & Poole College, was created to encourage and help create a broader, more inclusive vision for the arts locally. Open to all Dorset artists, designers and makers working in all media types, the prize is designed to actively engage the community.
As a department, we entered a wide range of work from GCSE, BTEC & A Level to the competition across several subject specialisms including painting, drawing, photography, printing, textiles, ceramics and sculpture.
We are extremely proud to announce that we were the winners of the 'School Prize' and have won £500 for the department. Comments from the judges about our work include "the over all quality and broad use of media was exemplary."
