As part of The Door’s work in Archway School and the 25 and Counting campaign we challenged year 7 and 8 students to design a T-shirt that celebrated young people in Stroud. The entries were collected at the end of April and given to the Judging Panel; Barrie Voyce ( CEO The Door), Jonathan Hill (Head of Art and Photography at Archway School) and Russell Beard (Square Banana) who back in 1991 designed one of The Door’s First Logos. 


Prizes were awarded as follows:

First Place awarded to Megan S ‘Discover Your Hidden Talent’ : Really well composed artwork with lots of detail whilst still being punchy and bold. And some nice local references in there.

Second Place awarded to Eden K ‘Live Love and Dream’ A nice sentiment here and well executed. Nice and bold with positive imagery.

Third Place awarded to Dan G and Special Recognition was given to Ellie B
