The Annual is Creative Review’s showcase of the best work of the year, as chosen by our jury (you can see all the winning projects here). To launch the 2017 Annual, CR hosted leading lights from the creative industries, including Turner Prize-winning artist Jeremy Deller, at Stone Nest on Shaftesbury Avenue in London.
A former Welsh chapel (and once home to the Limelight night club) Stone Nest will be a new home for the performing arts, right in the centre of the West End. Last Thursday, its spectacular architecture provided the perfect backdrop to launch the Annual.
We celebrated our nine Best in Book winners, each whom were presented with an Annual trophy. In addition, there was an exhibition of work from the Best in Books winners plus a copy of the Annual for all attendees.
Music for the night was provided by Audio Network and beer from Estrella. Congratulations to everyone who had work selected for this year’s Creative Review Annual and thanks to all those who entered. We’d also like to thank our brilliant judges (and also Breather who provide the judging venue this year).
