In September, Emerge returns to showcase some of the best work by this year’s graphic design graduates as part of the London Design Festival. And there’s still time to upload your work to their website to be considered for the show…

Working in collaboration with Art Below, the Emerge 2010 programme will feature a series of poster installations in various east London Underground stations, forming the basis of the second Emerge graduate award. One winning poster design will be selected by a panel of industry figures headed up by Domenic Lippa of Pentagram.

“There will also be a week long exhibition of the posters at The Cube London, which is the LDF’s east London hub,” says Emerge co-founder, Holly McConnell. “Being part of the LDF will allow graduates to get in direct contact with industry leaders, potential employers and fellow graduates. As if that wasn’t enough, graduates will also have the opportunity to make commission on limited edition print sales of their poster.”

There will also be a selection of workshops this year, including a networking session by the Enterprise Centre for Creative Arts and a session on intellectual property advice from the Bridgeman Art Library. A talk by some of last year’s award winning graduates is also scheduled.

Emerge was set up in 2009 by London College of Communication MA students, Holly McConnell and Jane Trustram. It will run from 18 to 26 September at The Cube London and in Underground stations in east London.

To upload samples of your work to be considered for Emerge 2010 and to find out more about this year’s events, see thisisemerge.com.

The deadline for submissions is 2 July.
