New Now...
We will be accepting submissions up till 5pm (GMT) on Thursday 9th April.

In light of current concerns around COVID-19, we have decided to extend the deadline for our 2019/20 Student Award programme, and we will be accepting submissions up till 5pm (GMT) on Thursday 9th April.

If you have created physical work, we ask that you hold on to that for the time being — and enter your work purely digitally initially — marking where required that there are supporting physical elements. We will then be back in touch to organise receiving physical work.

Our team are continually on hand to help and answer any questions. Please email
