STUDENT CROWNED BESTIVAL DECOR WINNER

eleanorbestivaldecorwinnerIsle of Wight College student Eleanor Hortion has been declared the winner of this year’s ‘HMS Bestival’ themed Bestival Campsite Hub Decor competition.  

Eleanor’s design, which adorned one of Bestival’s colour-coded Campsite Hubs, beat off competition from fellow IOW College students Ellisha Williams, Hobie Harwood, Lily Lofthouse, Jade Barry, Martyn Fisher, Brad Parratt, and Alice Barnes.

The competition, judged by Josie da Bank, is an integral part of Bestival’s partnerships with Isle of Wight organisations abd is run in conjunction with IOW College. Level 2/3 Art and Design course students take part, giving up their summer holiday time to not only design the distinctive Campsite Hub décor, but also to learn vital real life skills as part of the build team at Bestival, taking in on-site health & safety rules and the realities of seeing a design from draft to pride of place in situ at the campsites.

“It was an exciting and unpredictable experience that taught me a lot about working in the real world. I have learnt the value of team work, and now have a better understanding of working with a real client”.
