Last term we launched ‘A View of Nottingham: Impact Arts Competition’ to showcase some of Nottingham University’s undiscovered artistic talent. In the course of the last few months we have been sent some brilliant (and often surprising) entries ranging from technically accomplished architectural drawings to an Ugg-boot photomontage! The entries reveal how varied our student experiences and perceptions of Nottingham are. We hope that whilst relating to some of the images they also spark off new perspectives and ideas about our city.
We would like to thank everyone who submitted images, the standard of entries was very high but unfortunately there were just too many to include here. Simon Kinvig’s drawing deserves special mention for the imaginative way in which he integrates a typical image of graduation with his illustration of Market Square, probably the most recognisable and traversed part of our city centre (even if it is only en route from Coco Tang to Oceana).
