Six entries have been selected for special prizes totalling over £2,000.
Stephanie Greenslade of Morley College won the Drawing from the Imagination prize for her intricate depiction of 'Mother Autumn', while the Drawing for Design prize went to Sumi Perera of Kensington and Chelsea College for her piece 'Shattering the Glass Ceiling II'
Unable to choose between two exceptional entries, the judges named both Deborah Robins of the Mary Ward Centre and Rouhi Peck of Putney School of Art & Design joint winners in the hotly-contested Drawing from Observation category.
Harry Bridgman of the Mary Ward Centre and Konrad Gabriel of the Prince's School of Drawing were highly commended for their entries.
Visitors to the exhibition will still have the opportunity to nominate their favourite drawing for the People's Prize, an award of £200 which will be presented to the exhibitor with the most votes at the end of the exhibition.
