International graduate arts platform Medium Magazine and leading creative consultancy and think tank Societás announce the winners of the Creative Graduate Prize 2005.

The brainchild of Societás CEO Melissa Sterry and Medium Magazine Editor-in-Chief Laurie Cansfield, the annual prize has been created to help launch graduates from the visual arts into the International creative arena.

The theme of this year's competition was to create a single image to communicate the idea of 'Happiness'. Submissions for the prize came from creative graduates across the UK and Europe.

Laurie Cansfield, Editor-in-Chief, Medium Magazine commented 'young artists and designers working across every medium were invited to submit entries to the competition. 50% of entries came from young photographers, many of whom showed outstanding technical ability and a real talent in the field. We were delighted to receive a higher than expected number of entries from illustrators, in particular artists working by hand or using mixed media/collage. Most of this year's entries came from UK graduates; we hope to build the Prize's profile over the coming months, so as to encourage a greater number of International creative graduates to submit entries to the 2006 'Creative Graduate Prize'.

Melissa Sterry, CEO, Societás, 'judging the Creative Graduate Prize was a tough call, we received some outstanding entries from young creatives working across the entire visual spectrum. The diversity of responses to the theme of 'Happiness' was incredible and thought provoking. Although the winner's entries were not the 'prettiest' or most visually 'attactive' of entries, we felt each of the entries challenged conventional visions of happiness and conveyed a strong conceptual message'.

The winner of this year's prize was Jessica Zetterström, a graduate of Information Design at London College of Communication. Jessica wins the hottest accessory of the moment - a 'Key-2 Luxury' keyring, a prize which will unlocks exclusive deals and VIP treatment at top bars, hotels, spas, retailers and restaurants in London and around the world. The prize was donated by Societás.

The judges took the unusual move of giving both runner-up places to the same artist, Alex J Bunn. The judges commented that both his entires had been outstanding and so diverse in style and concept as to justify the artist taking both second and third place.

The winning images will be featured in the Jan/Feb issue of Medium Magazine, online now at www.mediummagazine.net and in the Societás.biz online 'gallery'.
