Love West Dulwich Lamp-post Banner Competition – Exhibition launch

March 24, 2017

The LWD Vision Exhibition
Volcano Coffee Works, April 2017

Together with our colleagues Love West Dulwich, the Dulwich Festival have announced an exhibition to celebrate the winners of the Lamp-post Banner Competition. Twenty eye-catching designs celebrating the spirit of West Dulwich have been selected to adorn new lamp-post banners in the area. Funded by a grant from the London Borough of Southwark’s High Street Challenge and with contributions from local businesses, the completed banners will be installed on 60 lamp-posts in the area and will be officially unveiled at the Love West Dulwich Spring Fair on Saturday 20 May.

The special exhibition, ‘LWD Vision Exhibition’, showing all winning and commended entries will be held from 1 April to 29 April at Volcano Coffee House (Ground Floor, Parkhall Business Centre, 40 Martell Road, West Dulwich, SE21 8EN).

The competition attracted entries from artists and designers of all ages and experiences, with a connection to West Dulwich – they might live, study or work there, have family or friends in the area or simply love the place for another reason. Entrants were asked to think creatively about what West Dulwich meant to them.

Judges praised the high quality of all the entrants and had a hard time selecting only 20.

Judges were Bianca Vallido Leach (local resident), Sue Badman (The Dulwich Society), Dan Rigby (local business owner), Ingrid Beazley (Dulwich Outdoor Gallery), Liz Gardiner (Southwark Local Economy Team), Rachel Gluyas (Dulwich Festival), Helen Hillyard (Dulwich Picture Gallery), Cllr Andy Simmons (Dulwich Ward Councillor) and Helen Hayes MP (MP for Dulwich and West Norwood).

Winners are Jodie Glen-Martin, Aurelia and Linnea Savini (Elmwood Primary School), Jessica Hayman, Anna Gibbings, Mary Rodriguez, Lorenzo Tonelli (Dulwich College), Rachel Su, Rosemary Clark, Struan Brown, Amelia (Kingsdale Foundation School), Max Acton (Elmwood Primary School), John Bateson, Eva (Rosendale School), Philip Maltman, DUCKS collaborative collage, Dougal Littlewood, Gussie Coutler & Wilf Edwards (Dulwich College Junior School), Heba Kleiner, Jude Person (Dulwich College), Rose & Eithne (Kingsdale Foundation School) and Sam Bridge
