Private View 2011

The annual wonder of the Creative Advertising final show descended once again on Thomas Parker House on Friday 3rd June providing a fitting culmination to three years hard work for the graduating students.

The Level 3 University of Lincoln Creative Advertising students have been working through the night to produce an exciting portfolio for assessment but also for their first steps into Adland.

All of this concentrated effort has created a very professional and extremely well received show.

At 4pm, students and parents gathered in the new Business and Law lecture theatre, a fine venue to screen this years Self Promo films. Lecturer Justin Tagg and course leader Gyles Lingwood offered a rousing introduction before the crowd sat back for 45 minutes of laughter, thrills and smart, creative thinking.

After a break so students could spend time with their families the everyone reconvened at Thomas Parker House where the Private View continued at 6pm. A typically hot evening kept the bar busy as everyone took the time to admire the care and attention that had gone into creating this year's impressive show.

Dean of the Art, Architecture and Design Faculty Professor Norman Cherry officially opened the Private View at 7.30pm with some well chosen words followed by thanks and congratulations from course leader Gyles Lingwood and senior lecturer Mike Belton. Stuart Minto and Debra Winning were also on hand to give thanks for the work that the students did for the North Lincolnshire Safer Neighbourhoods campaign.

As a staff team we are very proud of the work on show from the students and would like to offer our sincere congratulations on the results of three years hard work. We are very excited to see the impact each of them are sure to have on the world over the coming years.

If you, too, would like to marvel and wonder at the students' show then it is open to the public until Friday 17th June from 10am - 4pm.

Watch this space: a reflection on the show, the work and a selection of Self Promo films is coming up in the next week for all of those who were unable to see the work in person.

Until then a final congratulations, as senior lecturer Mike Belton put it, not to 'students, but to 'fellow advertising professionals'.

Well done!
