Winston Churchill is one of our Great Britons known across the world. But can you articulate why his life and example of leadership is relevant to people today? Explore the extraordinary story of Churchill’s life and his impact on the 20th Century and articulate your vision of his continuing relevance to the contemporary scene in a work of 2D form – from fine art and photography to illustration and graphic design.
Short listed students will have their work exhibited and voted by an external panel of judges, patrons and members of the Churchill Centre. A selection of the works will be exhibited for a period of time for the public to enjoy.
The top three winning entries will be announced at the prestigious annual Churchillian Award Dinner held in London in October 2013.

sensitivity to materials and techniques? Is your composition exciting and dynamic?

Is it surprising and compelling?
Communication – Is your design easy to understand? Is it able to communicate its message directly and with force?
Contemporary Relevance – Does your work show that you have thought deeply about the reasons for Churchill’s relevance to people today in the UK and beyond?
Inspirational-Does the insight in your design have the potential to inspire great things?
