It’s that time of year again: the degree shows are upon us and, once again, we’d like your help. In order to cover as many shows as possible, CR is once again looking for volunteers to attend degree shows in your town or city and recommend the most interesting work
This will be the third year in which we have run our Talent Spotters project. We cover as many degree shows as we can here on the CR website but there are only a handful of us. Time and money dictates that we cannot travel the length and breadth of the UK visiting every degree show. So, for the last two years, we have asked for your help.
Here’s how it works: We are looking for volunteers to cover any visual communications-related degree shows, whether BA, MA or any other level. We can’t pay you, sorry, but we’re hoping people will enjoy the experience. All we need you to do is to go along to the show of your choosing, photograph or otherwise gather images of the work you think is the most interesting and write a line or two on why you think that particular work is of note, making sure you credit the students involved and providing links to any relevant web addresses.
We will then publish your recommendations here on the CR website as part of our degree show coverage, alongside reviews from CR staff. Due to our location, we will pretty much have the London shows covered – what we really need are volunteers to go to those colleges that we can’t get to.
If you are interested in taking part, please leave a comment below with an email address and the show or town/city you are interested in attending, or email us direct at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will contact you.
Please do not put yourself forward to review shows with which you have a direct professional link (if you’re an alumnus, that’s fine, but no tutors or visiting lecturers etc please).
Many of the shows are listed here
Happy talent spotting!
