Our expert jury have also hand picked the most outstanding 28 portfolios which feature at the front of the talent pool website. All graduates in this talent pool are originally from mainland China, Hong Kong or Taiwan and have completed a BA or MA qualification in their field within the last two years.


“Upon reflection and as a synthesis of what stood out from the top candidates in my category was their ability not be defined by a particular craft or discipline, whilst demonstrating an impressive array of tools and techniques (almost as though they refused to be labelled).”
