Joint Second Prize
Entry in English
Gwen Burlington graduated from the National College of Art and Design in Dublin, with a joint degree in History of Art and Fine Art Media. She initially shied away from a career related to art, because she was aware that the prospects for someone writing about art were not very good. However, after working in a bank, then living in Vietnam for some time, she went on to take an MA in Contemporary Art Theory at Edinburgh College of Art, which, she says, was costly and probably not worth the expense. Recently, she moved to London and started working as a freelance art writer.
