Into the splendour of London's Barbican Centre, we welcomed a bounty of guests to celebrate those students most recently victorious.
The evening kicked off with speeches and awards presentations in the centre's opulent underground cinema. To a backdrop of jazz from The Apple Jacks Band, overall brief winners were presented with a wooden YCN Bar — crafted from oak by designer Tom Forsyth. Thereafter our guests moved up to the luscious Garden Rooms and Conservatory to meet, eat, drink and enjoy an exhibition of all this year's Commended work.
A huge thanks to our presenters Luke Stephenson, Kirsty Carter, Katie Scott, and the inimitable Michael Wolff. Many thanks too to Owen Richards and Sam Bush for the photographs below. The coming YCN Student Awards annual will be published later in the autumn, showcasing all Commended work in full colour glory.
