Winter Umbro Industries: our winners are revealed by Aaron› 28 Feb 2011
Another Umbro Industries, and another £10,000 given away to top ideas here in Manchester! Yesterday, we held the final for the Winter Umbro Industries at our Dale Street studio, with four bright ideas being presented to our panel of experts. After the presentations, and plenty of deliberation, two winners were chosen: Manchester Wire and the University Of Salford's BA Fashion course.
Manchester Wire (pictured above) have been awarded £3,000 to help them set up an online listings magazine for Manchester. The team will use the cash to fund a website giving the lowdown on what's on in the city, with previews of the best attractions.
Our second winners were the team behind the University Of Salford's BA Hons Fashion course. The team have been awarded £7,000 which they'll be putting towards an extra special catwalk show for their students. Utilising digital technology and innovative visual techniques, the team will create a special show which will bring their student's creations to life.
Congratulations to both our winners, and thanks to everyone who applied for the latest round of Umbro Industries. We'll have interviews with both our winners soon...
