It has taken a LOT of internet searches but I have finally found an appropriate brief for my first project of third year, hoorah! We had to find competitions to enter which would help develop our speciality subject area (mine being childrens book illustration).
I wanted the project to have some personal relevence to my life (much easier to create something when you like the topic!) so I tried to find a brief related to nature/the environment or something along those lines:
The only problem with that is the entry fee - £125 : o and the deadline - 22nd October : o
So I thought, I will use this brief as a basis for my work still, but enter the final piece into another competition, one where the brief is more open....and not so close...and cheaper : )
