I must rely on a Shia Lebouf gif and a cliche when reflecting on some of the work produced as part of the Web and Mobile Communications unit 2016 / 2017. Choosing the winners was genuinely very difficult. Of the 120 or so portfolio’s produced here, 37 were of a 1st class standard, and 14 were in the 80+ range. There will be a follow-up post to show off some more of this fantastic work.
However, the competition winners must be announced – even if I have been slightly sneaky so I can give out more awards! As a reminder the winners will receive 1 year of hosting and 1 year domain name rental*. So let’s begin! *drum-roll*

I cannot reiterate enough how exceptional some of the work was and how difficult it was to decide who won. As a consolation prize I would like to sign-post the following blog as coming very close.
