Gill and Ross Shortlisted for Marketing Award

7 April 2011

Great news today for HND Year 2, as Gill McColl and Ross Duncan were both shortlisted for the Marketing Society's annual Creative Student Award.

Both students passed the first stage of the judging process by submitting a written proposal for a campaign to raise the profile of Maker's Mark, the famous American Bourbon.

This is a major achievement - Edinburgh's Telford had only this year been invited to submit entries alongside Scotland's Art Schools and Universities, and the shortlist contains just six students drawn from those institutions.

Gill and Ross have been invited to appear in front of the judging panel on the 27th of
April, where they'll give a 30 minute presentation, followed by a 10 minute
Q&A session.

The final winner of the award will be announced at the annual Marketing
Society Star Awards on the 19th of May at Glasgow's Fruitmarket Gallery
- all shortlisted Creative Student candidates will be invited to attend
the ceremony as complimentary guests.
