An illustrious judging panel including Tom Stuart-Smith MSGD, Sarah Eberle MSGD and Arabella St. John Parker from awards media partner Homes & Gardens magazine has selected three finalists for the SGD Student Award 2013
After much deliberation the panel selected Matt Cairns (Greenwich University), Nick Morton (London College of Garden Design) and 2012 student award winner Jon Sims (London College of Garden Design) for the shortlist.
The three designers were felt to have the most consistent, methodical and cogent presentations of all the entries and the judges commented that all three “showed an ability to handle scale, understand space and achieved the brief in a clear and concise way”
There was no limits to the type or number of entries students could enter in the award. The judges were looking for outstanding design skills and importantly a clear demonstration of an understanding of the brief provided for the project.
This year the competition was open to SGD student members and those who had progressed from a student member to a pre-registered member between 18 May 2012 and 12 August 2013.
The winning student will be announced alongside the winners in all the SGD Award categories at the awards ceremony on Friday 24 January 2014. Tickets for the ceremony go on sale on 14 October 2013. ‘Early bird’ discounted tickets start from £99.
