Ruby Douglass wins the annual Nic Hughes Travel Prize 2020

The Nic Hughes Travel prize is offered in memory of former BA (Hons) Graphic Communication Lecturer, Nic Hughes, whose family kindly left a legacy in order to fund a £500 travel bursary.

The prize is awarded to an eligible second year Graphic Communication student who has shown notable improvement and progression since their first year of study. Nic was a great believer in travel enhancing creativity, so the scholarship is aimed at giving a student the opportunity to travel to a new destination of their choice. 

Ruby Douglass submitted her winning application to the judging panel, which consisted of Professor Hilary Carlisle (Dean of Design & Architecture) and Martin Schooley (Graphics Course Leader). 

Due to the Covid-19 limitations, Ruby has not been able to travel but she’ll be able to use the prize money in order to support her practice and final year at NUA however she sees fit. Congratulations again, Ruby!
