As many of you are aware we’re now rapidly approaching the upcoming vinspired National Awards! To help us on the night we’ve recruited lots of great volunteers – everything from party people to spread the word of v, to backstage volunteers, interviewers, bloggers and DJs. Response was fantastic and we’d like to extend a big thank you to everyone who’s sent in their applications and all the people involved in helping us get this far – standards were amazingly high and if we could have accepted all of you, we would.
So, all is nearly set for March 17th when the Indigo2 will come alive to celebrate the work of England’s most inspiring young volunteers from our shortlist of finalists as we wait in baited breath to hear who has won!
We love to keep in touch with past winners and see what they’re up to. On Friday morning we were greeted with some very exciting news that, one of last year’s winners, Rich Simmons was featured in this morning’s Metro and Daily Mail. Rich, a talented aerosol/stencil artist has just created his latest piece of work celebrating the engagement of Kate Middleton and Prince William, transforming them into punk rockers in an interesting twist; in an excerpt from the Daily Mail he comments,
‘Hopefully they will like it. I wanted to do something that would make William and Kate accessible’” he said.
‘They are the modern breed of royals and they’re not like the others, they are more down to earth.’
It’s great to see previous winners continue to gain such positive attention and we’re excited to see what this year’s winners have instore for us! In the meanwhile you can find out more about this year’s finalists here.
