CAPITAL GAINS ARE DOWN TO TALENT, NOT FAVOURITISM

LETTERS

In response to Tom Price's ill-judged and ill-informed letter about the President's Medals (AJ 12.01.06) I present the counter notion of regional sour grapes/envy.

Bronze and silver medal projects are anonymously submitted for judging and judges will be unaware of either the student's name or the school they are from.

That the Bartlett and the AA are pre-eminent is perhaps evidence of the abilities and commitment of their candidates and the strength and effectiveness of their teaching methods.

Price would be well served by reviewing previous years' winners, who have come from other schools; as with any competition the results can only be judged relative to the quality of the submissions made. Perhaps Price needs to understand this.
