Introducing the latest live creative briefs that form the basis of the 2018/19 programme — collectively representing some of the most urgent and diverse communication challenges across culture and commerce.

From helping young people that are going through a hard time, to addressing attitudes around energy usage; from reimagining the retail centre of the future to designing a second life for the iconic black cab — we believe this latest collection of live creative briefs to be our most diverse and challenging since the programme began in 2001.

The briefs are open to anyone studying, or to have recently graduated anywhere in the world. Your deadline for submitting your ideas in response to them is 5pm GMT on 28th March 2019. As always, entries will be judged by the organisations to have written the briefs before Commendations are announced in June, and all those Commended invited to a special exhibition and ceremony in London in the Autumn.

Discover this year’s briefs below, full submission guidelines can be found here and please email any questions to newnow@ycn.org
