Shoe Is Art - The Winner


Back in September I wrote about Dune's in-store autumn and winter 2010 campaign based on the theme of Shoe is Art.

Dune offered artists and shoe fans the opportunity to create their own piece of art in their latest competition. The competition ended on Monday 8th November.




Enteries could have been a painting, photograph, sculpture or any other form of art.
There were three regional prizes of £1000 (each one will be included in the final judging) and the main prize is for £10,000.

 There were over 400 entries including films,installations,paintings and sculptures.

The winners will also have their entries displayed in the window of the Flagship store in Covent Garden, London and other regional flagship stores across the UK.


After two hours of deliberation, the panel of  six (including Daniel Rubin Founder and Executive Chairman of The Dune Group), unanimously selected Jane Forbes.

Jane is an artist based in Scotland. Jane's winning work was put on display in the Covent Garden Flagship store on the 8th December and as part of the presentation she also received her prize from David Rubin.
