Outstanmding success for WCMD at Linbury     

Welsh College of Music and Drama (WCMD) Design gradute, Max Jones, is this years runner up of the prestigious Linbury Prize. WCMD was the only non-London based College at this years exhibition. Max Jones was also chosen as a winner within his section and will be working with the Young Vic Theatre Company in the new year - having secured a design commission worth 3,000.
This year, three graduating students from WCMD were selected for stage one - Howard Lloyd, Paul Rees and Max Jones. Previous entrants from WCMD include Robin Husband,1995 and Benita Roth,1997. Only one college had more finalists at stage one and of the sixteen colleges, only six had finalists represented at this stage.
At stage two, WCMD had two students representing the College - Howard Lloyd and Max Jones; Howard working with Welsh National Opera (WNO) and Max with the Young Vic Theatre Company. Both he and Howard have subsequently received offers and enquiries from other companies for 2002,having made a huge impression at the final. Past evidence has confirmed that from these top twelve graduates in the country, employment and success follow.

WMCD has surpassed its previous performances at this competition and selection to its final stages can be viewed as a firm indicator as to where WCMD lies within the ranking of design colleges.

Sean Crowley, Head of Design at WCMD said WCMDs Design department is delighted, although not surprised, by this outstanding achievement. They are extremely talented students and deserve this reward.
