Art - Racy design project

13th August 2010 at 01:00

Pupil designs of innovative sports equipment or clothing could be turned into a prototype as part of a competition running over the coming school year.

The winning design would also go on display in a touring exhibition, which will be the culmination of Human Race, a three-year nationwide project celebrating Scotland's influence on sports medicine.

The competition is open to Higher and Advanced Higher art and design students, with group and individual entries both valid.

A blog detailing the design process and pupils' progress will be on the project website to encourage dialogue between schools. The competition is also intended to build links between schools and universities.

Organisers are seeking corporate sponsorship so that a prototype of the winning design - and possibly shortlisted entries - can be produced for the exhibition.

Human Race is a Scotland amp; Medicine initiative, funded by the Legacy Trust UK and Creative Scotland.
