Introducing our annual Student Awards
Centred on a collection of live creative briefs

College Network & Visits

The YCN Student Awards run alongside a network of Universities, Colleges and Art & Design Schools. Copies of the YCN Student Annual are distributed across this network, and members of the YCN team make visits each year; to coincide with the launch of the latest Call for Entries. We also welcome groups to the YCN Building at 72 Rivington Street in London to hear more in person from our team. To discuss a visit, please email
