The third place prize of £25 book tokens was awarded to Siân Owen, a PhD student in the Institute of Integrative Biology, for her design showing a Christmas tree made out of familiar buildings on and around campus (See image below).
3rd place – Siân Owen
The competition, which was open to all students and staff, attracted a wide variety of submissions offering perspectives about what makes Liverpool a unique place to live, work and study, and included photographs, paintings, drawings and digital design.
All three designs will now be turned into printed Christmas cards to be sent by the VC and the Senior Management Team to University stakeholders as well as alumni and donors.
Commenting on the competition, Professor Beer said: “The quality of submissions to the competition were extremely high. The winning designs have been chosen because they show, in an imaginative and original way, what makes Liverpool such a special place.
“Congratulations to all three of our prize winners and a big thank you to everybody who sent in designs.”
Staff are welcome to send out some of the cards themselves if they wish – please contact Lindsey Sergeant on firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your requirements.
