I LUV MY CAN!
Nation-Wide competition I won around recycling cans, which I made a Couture Can Bustier.I came across this competition,
"I LUV MY CAN. "i luv my can is a brand new competition challenging lovers of canned drinks to get creative with your beverage can. The top prize is not only a cool £1,000, but also a year’s supply of your favourite canned drink.
Straight away i thought i would make something fashionable, hence me creating a bustier.
A few weeks later i found out that i have become a FINALIST. I have won the catergory of " Most fashionable can" , i got the email saying ..

Then i found out my piece was put into the daily mail page 47, to advertise the competition.
THAT is such an oppotunity in itself to even have my piece put into the daily mail!. I hope this opens many doors for me.
then ... My local newspaper: the gazette, did a feature on me because i was a finalist.
I couldnt believe the spread of this in the newspaper!
Check all these websites which announced the 10 finalists!
I got a phone call from ILUVMYCAN telling me that they were in love with my piece and that i had won the overall competition.
I was gobsmacked. I couldnt believe it.
I won a £1000 and year supply of canned drink( which i chose vodca and cranberry).
The gazette jumped straight in there and did an even bigger spread of me within the paper.
This is my trophy i got :)..
Daisy green magazine did a piece on me online, to say that i had won.. take a look!
YOUNG CREATIVES DID A PIECE ON ME TOO!
Finally my college also did a feature of me on their website.
