When lockdown happened at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic, Allison Murray Design joined forces with four other Cotswold philanthropic professionals to challenge the creativity of local Cotswold students missing out on GCSEs and A-Levels. We found sponsors, funding and judges for three Awards: Innovation, Creative Writing and Art and Design to launch The Cotswold Challenge. This became an inspirational and innovative competition for 16-19 year olds.
By the time the competition closed on 1st June we had received more than 500 entries. I have now worked alongside Bulldog Website Design to create The Cotswold Challenge Showcase an online exhibition of the winners and commended students work.
