A campaign to extol the benefits of local food safety has earned two MA Design students awards in a national competition.

The RSA Student Design Awards 2013 aims to reward those who demonstrate how the insight and processes of design can solve 21st century problems.

MA Design students Nicole Shadbolt and Meredith Thompson beat more than 75 submissions to with the Change Makers category, winning an internship in Waitrose's Graphic Design department, valued at £1,850 each. Their project, The Hive, is a co-design framework aimed to improve food safety in local communities; it uses the circular economy to create inviting, bee-friendly, communities that educate neighbourhoods.

RSA’S Co-director of Design Nat Hunter said: “We were extremely impressed by the quality of entries this year. The winning students demonstrated exceptional insight and ingenuity in their responses to the complex social challenges in the briefs. Many of this year’s winners have told us that entering the RSA Student Design Awards has transformed their aspirations, and they are now looking to develop a career that uses their new skills to benefit society.”
