Graduate scoops photography award

Photography graduate Stuart Whipps won an EAST International award, and his work was featured in the EAST International exhibition at Norwich University College of the Arts.

Stuart graduated from the University’s School of Art & Design with a first class BA (Hons) in Photography in 2005 and worked as a Visiting Lecturer at the University from 2006-2007.

Su Fahy, Divisional Leader in Fine Art and Photography, said: “Staff at The School of Art and Design at the University of Wolverhampton are always pleased to hear of graduate success in their chosen field of practice, as this offers inspiration to present students of, in this case, photography and fine art, and encourages emerging artists to submit work to Open Exhibitions and Awards.”

EAST International is an open submission exhibition. The selectors’ choice reflects what they learn from looking at more than 11,000 images of artists work from more than 30 countries.

Of these, two artists were selected to receive EAST awards this year.
