Third year Interior Architecture BA Honours student Abdi Ali has been announced as runner up in this year's Janine Stone Young Interior Designer of the year award, with his work The Communal Collection Hub.

The competition was judged by a panel of experts drawn from the worlds of design, fashion, photography, education and business. Led by Janine Stone, the panel included the renowned photographer and portraitist, Terry O’Neill; the British fashion designer to A-list Hollywood, Alessandra Rich; the Prima Ballerina and Royal Opera House star, Leanne Benjamin; online publishing entrepreneur, Raoul Tawadey; and Graeme Brooker, Director of academic group, Interior Educators and Lecturer at Middlesex University and the President of The Society of British Interior Design (SBID). The two runners up receive a cash prize and a trophy.

Janine Stone commented: “I was thrilled to see a huge increase in submissions this year, the field was of a very high standard and finding just 12 finalists from such a large number of submissions was a significant challenge for the judges. I would like to extend my gratitude to all Course Directors and Tutors across the UK who supported YIDA 2013”.
