I was amazed to see yet again the sway towards the glitzy student work from the capital in the President's Medals (AJ 07.12.06).

May I suggest that all those students outside of London (and those from London who may be interested) be entered into a parallel student competition that concentrates on and celebrates content rather than form; called the 'Student Medallions'.

Your cover missed out one badge from its collection? a London one. Wear it with pride, RIBA, instead of keeping it hidden inside your jacket - because the bias is clear to see.
