This announcement comes a little early but as we’ve received so many amazing #MyCSM Instagram entries, we’ve decided to select a winner for our weekend short courses prize today! We’d also like to say a massive thank you to everyone that has submitted an entry into our Summer School Instagram competition so far, we’ve been so impressed by the amount of creativity, skill and learning taking place over the last 4 weeks.

We’re excited to say that the first Summer School Instagram, #MyCSM, winner is The Photography Course student, @j.o.c.a.s.t.a.

Jocasta has won a free placement upon a weekend, Saturday and Sunday, short course of her choosing! Congratulations. We thought the work you have produced and shared with us perfectly captures the spirit and vibrancy of the course, as well as the CSM short courses experience! We also absolutely adored this series of photographs which summed up your time at CSM over the two week course.
