Thursday 29th March was the deadline for submissions as part of our longest-standing programme.

It's always one of the most rewarding and inspiring days of our year; meeting students and graduates and seeing awesome energy and ideas in response to some really difficult live briefs.

A big thanks to Michael and Emily, recent CSM grads — and good sports photographically; and all the other students and recent graduates across the UK and beyond who invested time and effort in tackling briefs as part of our longstanding Student Awards programme. Once again it's been a bumper year, as we can't wait to get stuck in to all that's been submitted; sharing the fruits with the brands and agencies that set the latest challenges. Look out for results news from June onwards, as well as details of the long overdue Student Annual (worth the wait, and thanks for continued patience) and this year's live event to elevate and congratulate in the flesh those who nailed the briefs.

Joining our Learning Network

Imaginative organisations, large and small, use YCN to build capabilities throughout their teams in modern, motivating and memorable ways.

Our peer-led membership programme is a popular starting point; giving teams open and self-directed access to a weekly calendar of in-person learning, a digital learning platform and a personal relationship with our own connective central team.
