Design Ventura Shortlist 2017
We are pleased to announce the top 10 entries for Design Ventura 2017.
Thank you to all the teachers and students who have worked so hard on this year’s project. It is thanks to all of you that the Design Ventura is such a huge success!
We had over 14,500 students participating and our highest number of entries, so our panel of shortlisting judges did not have an easy task. After much debate, the final top ten entries were selected – please see a full list of all selected schools in alphabetical order further down.
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
All schools that have submitted an entry in the Design Ventura project will receive participation certificates for their students by post -we will send the certificates soon.
This year top ten shortlisted schools will be contacted by us shortly with further details about the Pitching event which is going to take place at the Design Museum in December.
