About Slant

SLANT is a non-profit organisation and the main aim is to provide an opportunity to recognise, reward and promote contemporary works right across the entire spectrum of design, and we propose that one of the best ways of achieving this aim will be through the medium of international competitions.

We are both pleased and proud of what has been achieved so far, but it is essential to point out that none of this could have been achieved without the support of very many people, but especially the enthusiastic support shown by all of our contestants.

A great deal of effort goes into organising these competitions and I want to thank Catherine Ryan for providing me with a huge amount of ongoing support and professional advice. At this stage in our development Slant receives no outside financial support.

I am also very grateful to our former judges, Steve Martino FSLA, John Brookes FSGD MBE, Prof.Paolo L Bürgi, Anthony Paul FSGD and Aidan Madden BE for lending their considerable weight to Slant.

SLANT is a non-profit organisation and jury members generously donate their time and expertise free of charge. We would be keen to expand our 'Judging Panel', so if you might like to put your name forward please contact us and we would be delighted to hear from you.

The results of our earlier competitions can be viewed in the Archive and on our Slant Facebook Page
