New Now: Student Awards Ceremony

On the evening of 9th September, at London's historic Toynbee Hall, we celebrated and showcased all those commended as part of the most recent YCN Student Awards.

After welcome drinks in Toynbee Hall's main rooms, we moved through to the dramatic theatre space where Pentagram partner Astrid Stavro, Scriberia co-founder Chris Wilson and emerging illustrator Joey Yu presented our certificates of commendation, to the lifting backdrop of our live jazz trio.

To conclude the ceremony, Astrid presented Amelia Cherrill, a graduate from Norwich University of the Arts, with our Student of the Year award — handing her a YCN concrete bar in recognition of an excellent, colourful and paper driven campaign for Dalston's Cola.

From there we returned to the Hall for food, drinks and conversations against a backdrop exhibition of all the Commended work. A huge congratulations to all those commended, and a big thanks again to our most recent partners for setting such a contemporary and challenging collection of live creative briefs.

The coming programme for 2019/20 will launch at the end of October. Please get in touch if you'd like to include a live creative, marketing or business challenge relating to your organisation.

Thanks too to Rob Parfitt and Sam Bush for the photographs below.
