MAKE IT IN DESIGN - print & pattern Scholarship 2020 Results

YAY!… it is time to unveil the winners of the 2020 Make it in Design Scholarship in association with Print & Pattern.
Once again we have been completely WOWED by the array of beautiful design entries from 39 different countries for the 2020 Scholarship in association with Print & Pattern.
The panel of judges had such an enjoyable time reviewing all of the AMAZING applications. We are absolutely thrilled to see that so many people want to make surface pattern design a part of their creative journey, and recognise Make it in Design as a fantastic way to do that. Thank You – it’s a true honour for us!
Entries were shortlisted by Make it in Design co-founders Rachael Taylor and Beth Kempton following which I joined the panel to select the final winners.
As the standard of entries is so incredibly high we have not just one winner, but will offer THREE full scholarships and SIX runner up prizes.

Our panel of judges said:
“Every year we have the ultimate honour, privilege and pleasure to look through all the fantastic scholarship submissions as submitted from all around the world.

Congratulations to all our winners, and a HUGE thank you to everyone who entered – such a wealth of design talent”.
WINNER 1 Nicola Thompson | Singapore

I selected Nicola Thompson as my overall winner.
I loved Nicola's stylised animals and flowers. Her use of shape and texture is highly original. I could see her designs and soft colours working very well for babies.
