Young Creative Awards 2014

Young Creative Awards May 2014 (Get Involved Page)In May 2014 the Royal Concert Hall will be hosting the Young Creative Awards.
The Nottingham Young Creative Awards is the competition which is gaining recognition by creative businesses in Nottingham. The awards are an opportunity for young people to showcase their creative work, network with future employers, and gain valuable industry experience. Entries also have a chance of winning fantastic cash prizes and exhibit work, as well as an opportunity to gain work experience and mentoring. 

In 2014 for the Nottingham Young Creative Awards we are in search of young people, aged 13 years - 24 years old, to represent and celebrate the best young talent Nottingham has to offer.

The theme for the Young Creative Awards 2014 is Nottingham Loves...

What is it that you think Nottingham Loves... and what do you love about Nottingham? There are many great things about the city and through this competition you can share what you love with others.

You can enter any of the categories listed below in order to stand a chance of winning prizes, gaining recognition at a prestigious show case event and featured in the local press. Entering the competition gives you access to creative industry specialists, writers, designers, film makers and many more.

You are invited to submit a piece(s) of your creative work which could highlight aspects of what you love about Nottingham.  Be as creative, unique, experimental and expressive as you like within the categories of your choice based around the theme.  The most successful of past winners have not only been creative but they have met the brief and have given us a new way of seeing Nottingham. 

Nottingham Loves... categories for 2014:

Architecture and Design, Animation and Digital Media, Creative Writing, Dance, Fashion and Textiles, Film, Graphic Design, Music, Photography, Visual Arts

The competition is open to anyone who lives, studies or works in Nottingham. You may enter as an individual, as a group, as a class/study group or club.

The Young Creative Awards are managed by One Nottingham and organised by a consortium of partners from across the creative industries and education in the city.
