The Richardson Brown Travel Prize is offered annually in memory of Frances Brown, a former student who left a legacy to NUA in her will to fund a £500 travel bursary. The prize is awarded to an eligible second year student who has shown excellence in their studies.

BA (Hons) Fashion Communication and Promotion student Emily McLeister submitted a strong application to the panel which consisted of Hilary Carlisle (Dean of Design & Architecture), Richard Sawdon Smith (Dean of Arts & Media) and Hannah Linsdell (SU President). 

Emily used the prize money to fund a trip to Denmark in August to attend Copenhagen Fashion Week (CPHFW), where she undertook work experience as a Writer and Photographer for Nordic Style Magazine.

"My experience at CPHFW was invaluable to my studies at Norwich University of the Arts. My transferable skills have really been developed - including my time management skills; my ability to meet deadlines; my organisational skills and my teamwork skills."
