Applications are invited for the 2013/14 Better Lives Procter & Gamble Awards. These new, annual awards are open to all MA students at LCF and will be based on final project proposals.
Deadline: 22nd May 2014
Preference will be given to applicants who clearly aspire to produce innovative new work that aligns with the College vision of “Better Lives” through the power of fashion. For 2013/14 we are keen to encourage applicants who are engaging with new concepts of beauty for diverse communities of age, race and ability. The key criterion for the awards is a research focus on "Looking Ahead".
The award will be made by skin biologist Dr Paul Matts, Research Fellow at P&G and Visiting Professor at LCF. He will be advised by Sandy Black, Research Professor at LCF and Dr Phil Sams, Honorary Doctor at University of the Arts London.
The award can be spent in any way the recipient sees fit to support their project. There are no corporate strings attached for content, but recipients will be asked to present their finished work to the P&G community. Recipients will be offered opportunities to engage with the research community at P&G and the broad networks of Matts, Black and Sams while work is in progress.
There will be two awards of £5,000 each. To apply, submit your project proposal electronically (no more than two A4 sides/1000 words plus any appropriate visuals) and 500 words on how this award would help you.
Submissions to be made via Moodle before midnight on 22 May 2014.
"Looking Ahead" is also the theme of the 2014 'Better Lives' seminar series. For more information and to book your place: Better Lives Seminar Series
