MORE than 100 students showed off their fun side by entering a postcard competition for Comic Relief.

The art and design pupils at Suffolk New College had one hour to create their postcards with the only condition that the design include a red nose.

The creations were judged yesterday by comedian and former Comic Relief host Griff Rhys Jones.

He said: “The postcards are really great and everybody has had a go which is the main thing.

“It’s been almost impossible for me to make a decision because the students have each done completely different things.

“Some of the designs look professional and I can imagine them being used on Comic Relief merchandise.”

Art and design lecturer Cary Norman said the students were asked to enter the competition and contribute to Comic Relief.

“More than 100 entered and the brief was that the postcard had to have a red nose on it and had to be fun,” she added.

“Each student was given an hour to complete their creations but were allowed to express their imagination and creativity by following any artistic medium they wanted.

“Griff has been connected with Comic Relief from the very beginning with the first programme so it’s very poignant for him to be here judging the students’ work.”

The college raised hundreds of pounds for Comic Relief but the amount is not yet finalised.

The winners - Fran Russell, Emily Godden, Peter Hart, Gabrielle Bailey and Naomi Barrell - were presented with Stella McCartney Red Nose Day designed T-shirts.
