Enter our Student Design Award

UK ART & DESIGN DEPARTMENTS: Tell your students to submit an entry to our Design Award, part of the Creative & Cultural Employer Awards.

We are delighted to be running the Creative & Cultural Employer Awards next year at our Annual Conference in March.

These awards will celebrate the work of creative and cultural employers up and down the country who create opportunities for young people to work and learn in the industry.

Awards for young people

This year we will also be celebrating the achievements of tutors and young people by introducing new awards, including:

  • Apprentice of the Year
  • Paid Intern of the Year
  • Tutor of the Year.

The awards need to represent the qualities of training for the creative sector, and for this reason we would like to pick a Design Award from our network’s Art and Design students.
