YCN have launched a brand new creative awards programme which will be open to new creative talent, working professionally around the world.
“We believe that well organised Award programmes have a valuable role to play in sharing brilliant new creative work and publicly recognising those behind it”, says YCN Founder Nick Defty. “We have set out to design something far-reaching and accessible that will give recognition to some of the most exciting talent coming through.”
This year’s Call for Entries campaign, and a glittering interactive physical award, have been designed in collaboration with New York based typographer and FFF regular Craig Ward. Combining striking type with imagery of the award itself the campaign invites creatives around the world to ‘Shake it Up’.
“I photographed a tonne of falling glitter which is rather difficult to focus on! I built the type out from there. The most important thing I wanted to capture was the energy and excitement of rising up as a creative.” — Craig Ward
The Awards cost £40 to enter and all those who do will become Super Members of YCN with loads benefits for a year!
Entries are invited online by March 28th 2013. Full details can be found at ycn.org/awards
