Red Card Finalists

25 February 2014

Earlier this week two of our NC students were shortlisted for the Show Racism The Red Card creative competition. The NC course is an introductory course to the two-year HND Visual Communication, and students Charlie Law and Kim Louden both submitted their entries to the Sectarianism brief. Charlie commented 'I was surprised to find out about the Red Card competition, as I felt other members in the class had much stronger concepts!'

This creative award is sponsored by the SQA and the Scottish Football Association, and the prize-giving is held annually at Hampden Park in Glasgow. Each year there are more than 2000 entries across all categories, and this will be a fourth successive shortlist success for our students. The winning work will be used as part of Show Racism the Red Card's anti-racism publicity throughout Scotland in 2014/15, and the artwork will go to all schools, colleges and councils. Judges this year included former Scotland Manager Craig Brown, and Scottish novelist William McIlvanney.
