I enjoyed these awards as I know more and more commissions are being enjoyed in this northern powerhouse. Good to see Fuji and others supporting these events. Also to see some ex-students attending and being in the awards. Doug Curry another ex students who is the lifeblood of these awards is still hard at it keeping them alive The event was very well organised and gets better and better. It was good to see Shamus from the AOP there.
I did feel however it could have been better supported by the community it was helping to promote. These are not times to be complacent and when some of us have travelled a subtantial distance to attend others more local should have made the effort.
