New Blades '18

Thank you to everyone who attended New Blades '18.

Once again, we had an amazing turn out with over 120 companies signing in during the Private View and a very busy Public View, where friends and family could enjoy the work on view.

107 graduates from 7 Universities & Colleges exhibited an extraordinary range of models from a spectrum of 3D design disciplines.

All models are now on our Flickr gallery and the show guide is available at the bottom of the page.

The 'Best of Show' award, voted for by visiting professionals, saw a record number of votes cast this year.

New Blades '18 Best of Show winner

Felix Burke, from the University of Hertfordshire, narrowly took the top prize, winning by a single vote.

New Blades '18 Best of Show runner-up winner

Harry Quarendon, from the Arts University Bournemouth, had to settle for the 'Best of Show Runner-up'.

When we counted the votes, there was a spread across many of the exhibitors, testiment to the overall standard of models on show.

The Industry awards were judged by the companies sponsoring the award. Each had to short list two model makers. The winners are below, but the 'short listed' exhibitors included Marcus Dante (University of Hertfordshire), Kathy Aubrey (University of Bolton), Harry Richardson (Arts University Bournemouth), Ang Rui-Wei (University of Hertfordshire), Marco Cavassa (University of Hertfordshire), Luke Stonach (Arts University Bournemouth), Sarah Crystal (ArtsUniversity Bournemouth), Lee Phillips (University of Hertfordshire) and Heidi Connor (University of Bolton).
