Eleven people on the BA (Hons) Events and Entertainment Management course have won the chance to be trained by industry experts.

Dedicated to helping students with a passion for the festival and fashion event, the competition asked them to share their thoughts on the industries.

Those interested in exploring careers in festivals sent in responses to the question: ‘Why does a festival need to be green and environmentally friendly?’

The students looking for a career path in the fashion world sent in answers to: ‘Why is fashion important to a person’s positive psychology?’

The winners will receive focused events guidance paid for by the University of Sunderland in London.

They’ll be sent on training specific to their chosen industry run by two leading companies, the Luxury Fashion Marketing short course from the University of the Arts and Greener Festival Assessor.

  • Petya Nikolova 
  • Sofia Korcheva 
  • Jevgenija Arhangelska 

On her love for the fashion industry, Petya said, “Clothes show us many things about ourselves. We use fashion as a way to express ourselves. It’s up to us to be unique, not the shops and designers.”

Carolina explained why, to her, festivals need to be environmentally friendly. “In this era of global ecological consciousness, more activities need to be planned to give something back to the Earth.”

Irina explained how fashion can open up our experiences. “It allows individuals to escape from the real world and enter a world of imagination, to make a statement by the way we walk, dress and share.”

Zhasmina discusses her thoughts, saying, “It’s crucial for people to become united against the problems with our environment.”

Both competitions were organised by Fotios Vasileiou, Lecturer in Tourism and Hospitality, in collaboration with the University of Arts and the University of Falmouth.
