The YCN Student Awards exist to inspire, support and showcase emerging creative talent, and to connect it with the creative industries. The Awards center around live creative briefs, written each year by partnering organizations, and spanning broad creative disciplines.
From 2014, YCN now operates a separate programme for Europe and for North America. The YCN Student Awards for Europe, and the YCN Student Awards for North America adhere to the same timings and entry guidelines, but centre on their own individually curated selection of live creative briefs.
Students and recent graduates, throughout Europe and North America, are invited to work on the creative briefs – available through the official website – and to submit their work by the 19th of March 2015.
As ever, entries will be judged by the organizations behind each brief, with all Commended entrants honored at YCN’s colorful annual Awards Ceremony and in the pages of the YCN Student Awards Annual. Internships, mentoring and other professional development opportunities will also be orchestrated for those to shine as part of this latest program.
The YCN Student Awards was launched in 2001 by YCN.
