It is with great excitement that we are launching two more competitions for the College’s 50thAnniversary in 2016!
Design a stained glass window
Trevelyan is now home to a newly, purpose built faith space upstairs in the Sir James Knott Hall, and to complete this beautiful room, we would like a stained glass window to be designed to commemorate the 50th Anniversary, which will then be created and placed in the window overlooking the front entrance to the College.
The glass in the window will be 440mm wide and 1105mm high, and no more than five colours should be used. There is no limit to the colours used, although the window is north facing, so it may be that paler colours work better. Entries can be sent either digitally, or by post to Natasha Gill, Trevelyan College, Elvet Hill Road, Durham. DH1 3LN.
The Composition Competition
This is a competition to create a new ‘anthem’ for Trevelyan! It can be a piece of music ofany genre which will last up to ten minutes, and that represents Trevelyan to you! We ask that the entries are submitted in a written score, and/or sent as a recording, which can then be passed on to a judging panel.
It is also important to note that Trevelyan College will hold a copyright on the piece of music submitted. The piece should be capable of being performed at public occasions, and be available to listen to via the College website.
This is a fantastic opportunity to make your mark for Trevs amongst current students, College staff, and up to 7000 alumni!
Prize: The winners of both competitions, and their guests, will be invited as guests of honour to the January invitation dinner taking place in 2016 (or an alternate event of their choice), which will include some of the most prestigious individuals from the College past and present! The prize also includes accommodation.
The competition is also open to all students and alumni, so there might be some tough competition!
The deadline for the design and the musical entry is Friday 18th September 2015. Please send all designs to Natasha Gill in the alumni office, via email@example.com.
