For the fourth year we have organised the Young Designers Award competition on the island. This years brief focused on creating a new use for the dilapidated pier in Totland. The response this year was amazing – with entries ranging from petting zoos to planetariums and gymnasiums to a navy base.
This year saw the re-branding of the Young Designers Award and the launch of the new website – www.youngdesignersaward.com. This increased awareness created a real buzz around the competition and many schools took part, submitting a total of 400 entries – making it very difficult for the judges!
