We're delighted to reveal the latest set of live creative briefs for the Student Awards Programme 2017/18.

We're delighted to reveal the live creative briefs that form the basis of our Student Awards Programme; they're surely our most challenging collection to date.

The YCN Student Awards exist to stimulate, elevate and celebrate the freshest creative thinking around the world. Centred on a collection of modern design and communication challenges, the programme is open to students and recent graduates anywhere in the world. We believe that creativity has the potential to effect transformative influence on any commercial, social or organisational challenge.

Our collection of briefs this year present a thoroughly modern and diverse snapshot of such challenges — from enticing more people to coach gymnastics, to launching a summer season of street food markets.

The originators of work Commended in response to the briefs will also be honoured as part of our Student Awards ceremony, and celebrated in the pages of our YCN Student Annual.

The deadline for entries is 11:59pm GMT on March 22nd 2018. 

We build capability

We help organisations of all shapes and sizes to become more capable in pursuit of their goals.

To do this we focus on what we believe to be the three key drivers of organisational capability — People, Purpose and Partnerships. Whether through our open learning programmes, or tailored consultancy work; we love bringing together creatively-minded groups to work and learn in modern and motivating ways.
