eco is now in its 3rd year. The eco selection panel, which this year shortlisted thirteen artists for the exhibition from a record 330 applications from all over the world, consisted of several prominent figures from the region’s arts scene.
Awards included a £1,500 prize for best overall artwork (HW Business Advisors), £500 prize for best South West based artist (St Austell Brewery), £500 prize for best new media artist (DNA Advertising) and a special Exeter Phoenix award for best art student entry. South West based arts magazine Proof also offered one (eco) 2008 artist of their choice a feature and the istormmodern gallery on Exeter Quay selected one (eco) 2008 artist for an exhibition.
