Dear MCAD,

On behalf of the Design Department, please join me in congratulating our 2019 Merit Award winners. Our committees were impressed with the quality of the exhibitions which made the selection process especially difficult. Our congratulations and thanks to all who participated.

Let me also make a special mention of thanks to Ema Thoen in Academic Affairs and our friends in Academic Services, without whose help these proceedings cannot take place. A thousand thanks!
