1 Winner
John Glynn who came down all the way from Ireland for this event and won the prize of an internship at SeymourPowell.

Thank you to all the participants, schools and those who came to support the sketchers.

I wanted to say thank you to all of you. I really appreciated the efforts you guys did to register and come over to the event, I know it was very stressful to be sketching in front of so many people and all the briefs were also quite challenging (especially the plunger…).

It matters a lot when we hire people to realise that they do more than the typical “this is my portfolio”. Having participated in this competition will tell a lot about you and it will make a difference in your next interviews. So please even if you did not make it to the last stage, use this experience in a positive way by showing to your next interviewer that you can go the extra mile.
