Design the 2020 University of Liverpool Alumni Awards

The University of Liverpool has launched its first awards to celebrate the success and achievements of alumni across the world. At the beginning of 2020, we will celebrate 20 University of Liverpool alumni, including 10 recent graduates, at an awards ceremony at the University of Liverpool.

We are looking for an artist or a studio to design the awards. We will need 20 identical awards that can be personalised with the name of the winner and their graduation details; the awards will also need to display “2020 Alumni Awards Winner” and the logo of the university. The dimensions cannot exceed 25cm x 25cm x 25cm and the awards cannot be shorter than 20cm. We ask for the designs to be tasteful, as we want the winners to be able to proudly display their award, and appropriate for both recent and older graduates. They need to be light enough to be easily carried and be able to stand, so that they can be displayed. Additionally, we would ideally like for it to have a local connection – for instance, through the materials, the design itself, etc. We are flexible in terms of the design and materials, and welcome creative proposals. The production of the awards will be managed by the University, so you only need to send us your design!

The university will cover the costs of materials, production, and artist fees up to £1500.

The deadline for the submission of the designs is Friday 25th October. Please send a sketch and supporting information to If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch!
