CHERWELL SCHOOL, OXFORD - CREATIVITY PRIZE
The £350 prize is open to all final year students at the school (average age 17-18) who are invited to demonstrate their creative potential by entering one piece of work in any medium they choose. This is not a prize for academic achievement, nor exam grades, and the judging is carried out totally independently of the school by professionals who work in the arts and media. The judges are given no information on the backgrounds or school performance of those who enter, since this has no relevance in the judging discussions. Creativity should speak for itself.
Every year, the entrants demonstrate the most amazing and varied creative potential. The judges are continually inspired by young film-makers, fiction writers, dancers, drama groups, dress-makers, composers, musicians, painters, potters and poets.
The 2018 judges
Miles Waters, Will Wiles and Sue Hemingway
Climate: A cinematic novel by David Trumble
"David Trumble has earned his place among the artists in this field who deserve to be taken seriously. Whether David goes on to produce more comic-strip art or, as he hopes, become established in the movie business, I think we can assume that, in time, this edition of Climate will undoubtedly become a collector's item."
