"Two of the values of the University are Inovative and Bold, and I was struck by the fact that, to me, all the exhibits carried these qualities in so many different ways. All credit to all entrants for providing such a stimulating exhibition."

Ronnie Cleland, University of Strathclyde Judging Panel, 2018
