Out of a total of 39 entries across the four competitions – fashion, interior design, acting and filmmaking – for Regent’s University London’s international competitions 2017/18, submissions were shortlisted to three per category, before featuring at the graduating students’ end of year designs shows.
Open to pre-degree students in schools and colleges around the world, this year is the first for the Interior Design, Acting and Filmmaking competitions, joining the pre-established Fashion competition.
Judged by Regent's academics - all experts in their own fields - shortlisted entries were shown at their correlating Regent’s graduate show, and where possible, winning students were invited to attend the graduate show relevant to their discipline, as well as receiving a book prize from Bloomsbury Publishing for both the student and their school.
At the interior design exhibition held at the Department Store in Brixton, winners and runners up of the Regent’s Interior Design Competition 2017/18, In-Between Spaces, had their work displayed alongside Regent’s students. Participants researched an ‘in-between’ space in their local community, and designed a space in which people could dwell.
Interior Design competition shortlist:
• Alp Ertem - Hisar School
• Alya Hazinedaroglu - Hisar School
• Sarah Peake - St Andrews International School
Alya Hazinedaroglu, of Hisar School, took home a prize from Bloomsbury Publishing for both herself and her school, for her work which had been inspired by the High Line in Manhattan – located in-between the Standard Hotel and the following street.
The 2018 fashion show, held at the trendy Truman Brewery on Brick Lane, was a stunning showcase of high quality fashion, including that of the competition entrants.
Fashion competition shortlist:
• Basak Onbasioglu - Hisar School

Basak Onbasioglu, also of Hisar School in Istanbul, took home a prize from Bloomsbury Publishing for both her and her school, for the work she had produced (both pictured below).
The final of the graduating shows for 2017/18, Screenwriting and Producing and Film, TV and Digital Media Production, screened the graduating Regent’s students’ films at the Regent’s Street Theatre, and were delighted to be able to honour the shortlisted acting and filmmaking competition entrants.
Acting competition shortlist:

• Lara Sophie Loebke - International School Hannover Region
Filmmaking competition shortlist:
• Alexander Secilmis - TASIS, The American School In Switzerland

Though not all winners (Kaja Chan took home the prize for Acting, and David Cheung for filmmaking) were able to attend the screening, Lara Sophie Loebke, of the International School Hannover Region, attended the event with three of her classmates, Marcelina Escobar, Chiara Petroccio and Sophia Arjomand, pictured below.
A hugely successful year for all four competitions, Regent's congratulates all our brilliant entrants, runners up and winners for their talented submissions, and the judges look forward to receiving next year's entries!
