The Pangolin Awards 2020 (VC & CT)

The Pangolin is an endangered, solitary, and predominantly nocturnal mammal covered in scales. They are well adapted for digging and climbing using their tails and rear legs for support and balance.

We believe the Pangolin's uniqueness, resilience and dexterity is a worthy metaphor for our Open Window graduates. Whilst many mysteries surround the Pangolin’s behaviour and habits, what is known, is that they, like creative spirits, do not do well in captivity.

This year, the virtual award ceremony will celebrate innovative and pioneering student works across the Open Window Schools of Visual Communication and Creative Technologies.
