The festival was developed to showcase the best artwork produced by the thousands of students taking UAL qualifications at more than 200 institutions across the UK.

Rio Ordoyno’s piece ‘Improper’ was chosen for the Level 2 prize by the Head of Academic Standards and Chief Examiner for Level 2 Art and Design at UAL.

Rio, who has now progressed to study Performing Arts at Nescot, was he was ‘delighted’ to win the prize. Five other Nescot students also had their work selected for exhibition.

“To have your work chosen for a national exhibition is an amazing achievement, so we’re very proud of the six students involved,” said Kathryn Stephen, Director of Creative Industries.

“Rio winning the overall Level 2 Art and Design prize is exceptional, and is testament to his creative ability and hard work. We’re looking forward to seeing him continue to go from strength to strength.”
