Winners of the Prize for Oustanding Communication on Colour

Earlier this year we were delighted to host the first prize for Outstanding Communication on Colour. We received a large number of extremely high calibre entries spanning disciplines from biology, visual art, planetary science, psychology, literature, culural theory, physics, cosmology, publishing, sociology and much much more. Each entry was read multiple times in order to whittle down the entries to a shortlist of ten outstanding pieces. The shortlisted entries were read and voted on by the Colour Group committee.

We are very pleased to announce the winners:

  • 1st Prize: Colours that don’t exist – Ginny Smith 
  • 2nd Prize: The Colour of the Universe – Richard de Grijs
  • Runner up: Sports Courts – Cath Carver

Shortlisted (alphabetical)

  • Colourful Conversation – Olumalogbon Akinnola
  • Seeing the Invisible: Colour at Different Resolutions – Alexandra Holmes
  • The Mystery of the Ocean’s Blue – Jasmine Lee
  • The Power of Colour – Philip O’Reilly
  • What’s Your Favourite Colour? – Esmond Sage
  • Skin Tone – Kabe Wilson
  • How does colour affect the way we eat? – Caroline Wood

Congratulations to all the commended submissions. All the shortlisted pieces will be featured on the blog in the coming weeks. Thank you to all the people who took part in the competition for creating a treasure trove of new work in communication on the subject of colour.
