With nominations for our annual awards closing on October 30th, we’re continuing our rundown of the various awards categories - covering what to apply for, and who bagged the accolades last year. So far we’ve covered our City, Collaboration and Commercial awards; plus our Creativity, Independent and Leadership awards - now, we’re running through the final three…
The Social Award
This category is looking for an outstanding creative contribution or activity that benefits or contributes to a group or interest.
Last year the category was won by WHALE Arts for their vital Street Arts project - where artists engage with interesting young people and create new participatory work in an unexpected environment.
The Startup Award
This category is looking for an outstanding creative contribution or activity from a newly registered company, less than 3 years.
2016’s award was picked up by Werewolf, fresh from winning first prize at the International Projection Mapping Competition in Moscow earlier that year.
The Student Award
This category is looking for an outstanding student creative contribution or activity from a full or part time student engaging in a creative discipline.
This year's winner will be following in the footsteps of illustrator Paula Caffrey, whose book 'Pronouncing Poland' - created to help her understand her partner's family - wowed the judges.
