Our annual graduates feature aims to pinpoint and highlight the most exciting creative graduating students from across the UK. The work of a select few young and highly talented designers, illustrators, photographers, sculptors and artists will be showcased here throughout the beginning of July, concluding in a three-day physical exhibition at London’s House of Propellers (opening 20 July). The call for submissions is now open, so if you think you’re one of the most exciting young creatives graduating this year, submit your work now!
How to submit
It’s super easy to submit. All you have to do is send the following information to email@example.com:
1. Your full name
2. Your university’s name
3. Your full course name
4. Your contact details (email address and telephone number)
5. Three projects you think best represent you and your work. We request you send up to three images per project, along with a 50-75 word explanation. (Please send images at 72dpi.)
The submission deadline is 17 June. Unfortunately, due to the high number of submissions, we will not be able to get back personally to everyone. You will only be contacted if we decide to take your application to the next stage. Good luck!
