The Runners Up!

This year's competition was fierce, so choosing two runners up to win a £500 prize was no easy task for our judges.

That said, Elizabeth Dodd from the University of Northampton came in in second place, followed closely behind by Joel Mann from De Montfort University. 

We were also pleased to announce that two of this year's finalists' designs were highly commended by our judges. So here's a huge well done to Michael Jones and Efstratios Aligizakis!
