Congratulations to Meg van Hale and Hope Duncan, Jewellery & Textile students at the Dunedin School of Art, who have received recognition at the ECC Craft and Design Awards www.nzcraftdesignawards.com

The top designs were shortlisted from entries received from tertiary students throughout New Zealand, in the annual edition of this design competition run by The Friends of the Dowse Art Museum.

For 30 years the Friends of The Dowse have offered their support to New Zealand tertiary students through an Award scheme designed to encourage innovation and creativity specifically in the areas of design and craft. It is the leading national award in this area. The ECC NZ Student Craft / Design Awards are an avenue for students to present their designs to a wider audience outside the academic environment, and let the design community see the student talent that is emerging.

Meg van Hale won The Village Goldsmith Jewellery Award of $1,000 and Hope Duncan was given the Highly Commended Award in The Rembrandt Fashion and Textile Design category.

As two of the 16 national winners, both are now in the run for the Peoples Choice award. Check out the winning entries online and cast your vote.

Meg van Hale is one of the top five category winners and therefore also in the run for the Supreme Award winner announced on the night.
