At the opening of the 2011 Nanette Cameron Scholarship Exhibition at Unitec’s Mt Albert campus, Cameron also awarded  students Anna Hobbs and Amanda Gore each a $2500 scholarship. The Bachelor of Design and Visual Arts (Interior Design) students accepted the awards in front of staff, friends, family and the Interior Design Guild.

Nanette Cameron is one of the most recognisable names in New Zealand interior design, having been a successful interior designer, but also founding and teaching at the Nanette Cameron school of Interior Design. In 2004, Cameron was awarded a Queen’s Service Medal for her contribution to the community, and she is also an honorary member of the Designers Institute of New Zealand.

The exhibition was held in the building which houses Unitec’s Department of Design and Visual Arts Interior Design which has had a recent make-over by award-winning architecture firm, Architectus. It was exciting to see the transformation in person.
