About the Graduate of the Year Award

In 2009 the Textile Study Group set up the Textile Study Group Graduate of The Year Award to recognise achievement and to support new graduates in their challenging first year after graduation. The selection was made annually  until 2016 at the New Designers Show at the Business Design Centre in Islington. Members of the selection panel visited the stands to look at work, sketchbooks and talk to students. The winning student demonstrated strong making skills, a passion for what they do and an ability to communicate with their audience.
