Arthur Silver Award 2013

Announcing the launch of MoDA's Arthur Silver Award for 2013 - our annual competition for Middlesex University undergraduates studying Art & Design and Media.

As regular readers of this blog will know, the Arthur Silver Award was set up to encourage Middlesex University Final Year Art & Design students to engage with the museum's collections.  Entrants to the award are required to use the MoDA collections as inspiration in the development of a piece of studio work.  The winner receives a cash prize of £1000.  From this year the award will also be open to entries from 2nd Year students.  

Publicity for this year's Award is launched this week and we hope that entries will be of similarly high standard to previous years.  You can see the winning entries of previous winners of the award in a display at Middlesex University on the ground floor of the Sheppard Library on the Hendon campus. The display will be up until Friday 30th November.  Alternatively you can refer to previous blog posts.
