Tombola Of Dreams 2 'The Big 150' - New Prize Just Confirmed (And It's Fabulous!)




Okay ladies and gents - so, I know the prospect of winning a Cintiq has your mouths watering in anticipation of this term's TOD2 prize draw, but another prize arrived today for your delight and delectation - courtesy of the movie memorabilia people, Prop Store - Ultimate Movie Collectibles, who have donated very generously this original production-used storyboard from Star Wars Ep. V1 - Return Of The Jedi (1983). In addition, the storyboard panel is signed by Robert Watts, producer of Jedi.  The framed panel comes with a certificate of authenticity.  When I showed it to students in the baseroom today, the frisson was palpable - a bona fide piece of sci-fi cinema royalty!  This is a very special prize indeed, so thanks once again to Prop Store for sprinkling some 'industrial light and magic' our way!















Tickets for the Tombola of Dreams 2 are now available at the UCA Online Store.  If just 50 students were to purchase 3 tickets each over the course of the next six weeks, we'd reach our target of £1,500 no problem!  Remember all proceeds go to New Designers 2014 - and beyond - as any money not spent on this year's show will carry over to New Designers 2015.
