Cash prize for FXU Awards design

We are looking for an innovative design for the 2017 FXU Awards. The winning designer will be given a budget to cover their costs as well as a £100 cash prize for their idea.

About the Awards

The FXU Awards are all about recognising the activities and achievements of exceptional students and staff from the University of Exeter Cornwall Campuses and Falmouth University.

This is our chance to show our appreciation of the pro-active and hardworking students who do so much outside of, or in addition to, their studies. These are the people who go the extra mile to shape the future for themselves, FXU and the Universities.

Award Design Brief

We are leaving the brief quite open, with the intention to utilise the imagination and creativity of the designers. Our budget is modest – the overall budget for materials and production costs is a maximum £945, to cover 26 awards.

The winning designer will receive a prize of £100 and will be asked to produce the awards in time for our Awards ceremony.
