The nominations phase of this year's relaunched YCN Professional Awards is now complete; with a stunning array of creative work shared from around the world.

Earlier this year we wrote to hundreds of senior creatives, marketers and editors internationally — asking them to share examples of recent work that they loved and felt should be awarded. They could not nominate projects that they themselves had worked on or commissioned. Work is now being called in — in partnership with the team at WeTransfer.

The first judging stage wil now be conducted online, before shortlisted work goes forward to physical judging days. Judges are recruited from among those to have nominated work.

Final winning work will be Awarded with a Golden YCN Bar — shown below photographed by Luke Kirwan — and will be showcased in a YCN Annual being designed by the team at Atlas in Palma, Mallorca.

We'll share more news and images as the different stages progress.
