We're delighted to unveil all those Commended as part of the most recent YCN Student Awards both for Europe and for North America. All Commended Entrants are listed, in no particular order, below. Remember, there is no hierarchy of winners in the YCN Student Awards — a Commendation means you've won. A huge thanks once again to all those who took the time  — once again it was a record year for entries. We look forward to sharing further details around our awards event and next Student Annual later in the summer.

A massive thanks to all students who took the time to create and submit work.
