ND AWARDS TILE

ND Awards

ND Awards is the only graduate awards programme celebrating a huge range of design disciplines mirroring the format of the live event.

The approach of the awards is aligned to industry practice. Each award partner/sponsor has created a brief(s) for students to respond to.

Each of the awards will be judged by an illustrious panel of judges supported by award partners, with the opportunity to win a range of prizes and opportunities to boost their transition into the creative industries.

The winner of each of our awards and the shortlist of five runner-up’s will feature in a specially curated digital supplement hosted on newdesigners.com. In addition, it will go out through our channels, industry e-newsletter, social media platforms – combined 150,000 followers.

We will be working with a whole host of media partners, associations and other key event partners to support and promote these awards.

To take part, your University must sign up to New Designers 2020.
