ACE Best Product Awards 2014: Announcing The Winners!

The ACE Best Products were judged and awarded at the ACE Convention in York. Judges at the event, for product, were Julie Molloy (National Gallery), Sue Yeend-Curd (Royal Academy) and Sarah Allbright (John Lewis Partnership) whilst judges for publications were John Stachiewicz (Tate) and Jonathan Earl (Jonathan Earl Consultancy).
