The Searle Award for Creativity

The Searle Award for Creativity

This award was originally instigated by Ronald Searle, one of our most celebrated alumni, on the occasion of his award of Honorary Doctor by Anglia Ruskin University in 2007.

Ronald Searle used drawing to record the world around him, to invent characters and situations in his imaginative work, and to develop visual ideas. With this in mind, the prize (£500, and a signed Searle lithograph) is awarded to the final year student whose submitted sketchbook most reflects any or all of these qualities.

The winner of the 2015 Searle Award for Creativity was Maisie Shearring.
