On behalf of Tim (who is currently enjoying a well-earned break in Tassie), this weeks pic is from the 2018 John Carver Seminar Series. (From L-R Erich Weigold, Chathura, Larissa, Michael, Matthew and Jackson.) Congratulations go to Chathura Bandutunga for the John Carver Prize and the People’s Prize, Jackson Dowie for the Director’s Prize and Matthew Crabb for the Dean’s Prize. 
Well done to all the students who presented their research this year - Peter Vouzas, Chathura Bandutunga, Jean-Baptiste Gorce, Matthew Crabb, Elizaveta Melik-Gaykazyan, Joshua Butson, Jackson Dowie and Muidh Alheshibri. And a big thank you to the judges, Emeritus Professor Erich Weigold, Dr Michael Barson and Ms Larissa Huston.
