We are pleased to announce the first recipients of the Axisweb Awards 2020. A massive thank you to everyone that applied: the quality of the applications we received was incredibly high which made the decision-making process very difficult.
Sophie Bullock is the recipient of the £1,000 Project Commission. Sophie Bownes, Lady Kitt and Sunny Vowles & Inari Hulkkonen are the recipients of the the Research and Development Bursaries and will each receive £500.
The next round of Axisweb Awards will be announced at the end of March.
