Read more about the winner of the 2013 prize.

Prize Winner; Ffion Axon.

 

 

About Ffion when she was awarded the prize

My name is Ffion Axon and I am a first year medical student at Peninsula college of Medicine and Dentistry.
I studied AS level physics, A level biology, chemistry, maths and the Welsh Baccalaureate at Gowerton sixth form achieving 4 grade A’s. I took a gap year, where I worked in a pharmacy completing my NVQ level 2 and travelled.
Entering the competition was an opportunity to raise public awareness on a subject that I feel passionate about.
Winning the prize has enabled me to consider the option of funding an intercalated degree. Winning the competition has provided me with the opportunity for extra support and experience from members of the panel.
After completing my medical degree and foundation training I hope to do some travelling before specialising. I am interested in pathology and renal medicine, but haven’t decided on my speciality just yet.

The CJ Littlejohns Design Prize

Design Prize Winner; Jack Hayman.

 

 

This prize was established for the most innovative and appropriate design for a new website for the CJ Littlejohns Medical Prize. The design prize is worth £500 and was awarded to Jack Hayman.



My name is Jack Hayman and I am a sixth form student at Gowerton School. I heard about the design contest through my schools' Design department and felt it would be a good way to develop my graphics skills. Usually I work with 3D design and engineering, so working in 2D was an interesting way to expand my skill set. I tried many ways to build the website, bearing in mind the charity would need to edit the site quickly and easily. Working closely with Professor Peter Littlejohns and using an online website builder to allow us both to review changes, I found the right aesthetic to suit the subject matter. In future I plan to study Product design and Technology BSc at Loughborough university. The Prize money will come in very useful at university, and I am very thankful to the Assessment Panel for selecting my design.
