A huge congratulations to all those commended as part of the 2018/19 YCN Student Awards programme.

We're delighted to publish details of all those commended as part of our most recent Student Awards programme. All commended Entrants are listed, in no particular order, below.

Remember, there is no hierarchy of winners — a commendation means you've won. The variation in commendations per brief accounts for the number of entries per, and also judicial considerations.

A huge thanks once again to all those who took the time to take part; and to our partners for setting such a challenge collection of briefs. We can't wait to meet you at this year's awards event and exhibition, more on that soon, and some pictures from last year are here.

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