2012 stArt Winners Announced
Back in 2006 someone at the Co-op had an idea to run a student art competition – the idea was that student artists could submit artwork that would be suitable for a printed greeting card that would then be sold in-store at every Co-op Bookshop as well as online. It was a good idea, and the start of stArt:studentArt.
In 2012 a new category was added – Salon De Co-op, a category that any Co-op Member could enter.
Yesterday the winners were announced on the studentArt website and Facebook page, with 3 images from the four categories – Fine Art, Photomedia, Digital Media and Salon De Co-op selected. The 12 designs (below) will be turned into greeting cards that will be available later in the year.
Until these new designs are available you can pick up one of our 2011 range from the Co-op Online, or at any Co-op Bookshop.
What do you think? Was your favourite from the 2012 Gallery picked by the stArt Jury?
My fav from the winners is from the Photomedia category – Where the past and present meet by Bethany Schneiders (line 2 position 1), and my favourite overall, one that didn’t make it in the Jury’s selection, Dreaming of Red Umbrellas by Bec.
Well done everyone who entered – there’s lots of great work, and congrats to all the winners for 2012.
