Hall for Cornwall Theatre shortlisted for 2 national awards 

HALL for Cornwall’s Jack’s Cow’s project has been shortlisted for 2 Hollis Sponsorship awards.

The prize up for grabs is a Hollis Sponsorship Award in the Arts and Low Budget categories. The awards are set up to recognise the very best sponsorship campaigns in the UK and internationally – across all sectors and budget bands.

The judging panel comprised specialist professionals from each industry sector and each entry is scrutinised against a strict set of criteria – with clear objectives, creative execution and exploitation and evidenced outcomes/outputs and evaluation.

The competition is strong with Jack’s Cow’s up against HSBC’s Indian Summer, One & Other – Antony Gormley’s Fourth Plinth Commission sponsored by Sky Arts, Theakstons Old Peculiar Crime Writing Festival and Design Museum & Beefeater’s 24 Super Contemporary.

The winner will be announced at the Awards Ceremony hosted by BBC’s Garry Richardson at the London Marriott on March 9th.

Jacks Cows was a unique and innovative public art and fundraising project by Hall for Cornwall. It was the first of its kind in Cornwall and saw individually decorated life-sized cow sculptures displayed at sites all over the county from St Michaels Mount to The Eden Project. The culmination of the project was a 2 day exhibition at Hall for Cornwall followed by an auction where they cows were sold for an incredible £38,850.
