Middlesex University celebrated the second highest number of students recognised, with ten pieces of work, selected for publication in the 2010 Design and Art Direction (D&AD) Student Awards Annual. The awards received more than 3,000 student entries from art colleges and universities from all over the world, including institutions from the USA, Germany, Italy, Sweden, Hong Kong and Australia.
The annual D&AD Student Awards reward outstanding creativity and high standards of design and innovation among students studying courses in advertising, graphic design, digital media, film and animation, photography, illustration, product design and interior design.
Phil Healey, Head of Art and Design is “delighted (but not surprised)” by the success, "The D&AD Student Awards competition is essentially the 'Oscars' of student graphic design, illustration and photography. We've done well in this competition for a number of years but this is a fantastic result. It's great for the students and staff to get the recognition that the excellent work they produce here richly deserves.” The D&AD Student Awards were established 31 years ago and are designed to encourage emerging talent. D&AD is an educational charity that represents the global creative, design and advertising communities; setting creative standards, educating and inspiring creatives and designers at all levels, and identifying the best new creative talent to the industry.
