The next session of the evening took place inside the venue where the 2017 winners were announed. As guests moved into the venue, they were welcomed by Resound Music's harp player. Ice Art created two stunning ice sculptures for the entrance of the venue which framed the harpist beautifully.
We are really proud of our participants who all submitted excellent work in this year’s awards! With our platform we want participants to be inspired by fellow participants. We want participants to see the potential and benefits of collaborations. And we want participants to be able to learn from each other and each other’s experiences.
Congratulations to all the WINNERS, it is a great achievement especially with so many wonderful participants this year.
