School of Art and Design University of Bedfordshire student, Holger Kilumets, has been nominated by MK Gallery for the final round of the national Platform Graduate Award 2014 competition.
The inclusion of Sophie Fowkes and Holger Kilumets in the Platform competition is a remarkable achievement for both students. The students’ work will be seen by a large audience, including a host of creative professionals. It is their tutors’ hope that both students will be encouraged to continue their studies, maintain their practices and exhibit their projects in the future.
Students from The Photography and Video Art course won the MKGallery round of the Platform competition in both 2012 and 2013. The course has helped both Holger and Sophie develop a rigorous art practice, and I feel confident that they will excel in the competition and act as excellent ambassadors for The University of Bedfordshire both here and in the future.
