Graduate show listings 2010

The UK's graduate end-of-year exhibitions are your chance to view the hottest new work from the freshest UK design talent first. Make sure you're there with our UK-wide listings.

There's no better way of tapping into the freshest design talent than attending the annual graduate shows. Before they've even uploaded their works to their blogs, never mind landed their first clients, final-year students across the UK are exhibiting work that will offer a preview of where the UK design scene is headed - and who is going to lead it.

Computer Arts' first Graduate Show Listing forms part of our Graduate Showcase 2010 publications and events series which showcases and celebrates this year's graduating design talent across the field of graphic design, illustration, animation, broadcast design and web design.

There's a lot to look forward to in 2010, and the events outlined here are just the beginning. While we've made every effort to be thorough with the listings, if there are any other dates or institutions that you think Computer Arts readers should know about, email graduateshowcase@futurenet.com
