The goal of the AIC Student Paper Awards scheme is to encourage students to present their work at the AIC meetings and to benefit from interaction with the international colour community.
Applications must be substantially related to the subject of colour, but may be based in any
discipline or mix of disciplines. Both research-based and practice-based work will be considered.
The AIC Student Paper Awards are for final-year undergraduates and post graduates only and will run every two years in conjunction with the AIC Interim Meetings. Accepted abstracts with a student being the first author will be eligible to be considered for the Awards. Only one accepted abstract from the same student first author will be considered.
Three prizes, agreed by the AIC Student Paper Awards Panel, will be awarded to students on the basis of the quality of their full papers published in the AIC proceedings. The top, first runner-up and second runner-up prizes will be awarded with a monetary prize.
An extended version of the awarded papers will be published in a special issue of
the JAIC. The awards will be announced and presented at the AIC Interim Meetings.
In addition to the three awarded papers three student papers in the same meeting will be invited to provide an extended version of the full paper for the special issue.
Further enquiries should be addressed to the Chairman of the AIC Student Paper Awards Panel professor Stephen Westland.

Installation by light designer Svante Pettersson Photo: Patrik Lindell, Vandalorum
The purpose of the exhibition is to increase understanding of what light is and how it affects our perception of the outside world. This we want to do by making available pioneering lighting projects, installations and artworks by 16 Nordic artists, designers, architects and researchers – including Snøhetta, Finnish Vesa Honkonen, Norwegian Ellen Ruge, Swedish Svante Pettersson and Danish Astrid Krogh. Their projects are presented through large-scale installations in the exhibition hall itself and at Vandalorum’s inner courtyard. Several of the installations are created specifically for Vandalorum.

And, 1975. Foto: Veronica Nygren
Veronica Nygren (1940-2006) filled her art with everyday experiences and political awareness, with knowledge about Swedish crafts traditions and global influences, in a vibrant dialogue with art history and contemporary art. Nygren indefatigably put the potential of textiles to the test. Today, she stands out as a regenerator of textile art and design in post-war Sweden.

It features freehand weaving and applications, patterns and garments for the Mah-Jong label, along with personal and experimental tapestries and monumental commissioned public artworks.
