Coley Porter Bell announces student competition

Packaging and branding group Coley Porter Bell has announced details of its sixth student design competition, Shine.

Aimed at second-year graphic design students graduating in 2008, the competition offers a prize of £3000 and a three-month, paid work placement at the consultancy.

Students are asked to submit a piece of work from their portfolio that most distinguishes their personal style and talent.

Shortlisted candidates will be asked to present their work to Coley Porter Bell, from which ten finalists will be selected to design next year’s competition poster.

Last year’s winner, Christopher Andrew-Barrett, from Kingston University, has designed the call for entries poster that will be displayed at participating colleges and universities around the UK.

This year’s judging panel includes Chivas Brothers marketing director Sophie Gallois and CPB creative director Stephen Bell.

The competition was set up in 2001 to help identify emerging talent in the field of graphic design.

The deadline for entries this year is 22 June 2007.
