Additional Information- Vary Brief-YCN

4 Jan


The Deadline for Submissions is 6pm on Thursday 14th March 2013.

This year we are continuing with the online submissions process for the YCN Student Awards. All those wishing to enter the Awards must do so online.

As always, we are still expectant of the same loving attention to detail in the presentation and layout of ideas within your digital entry. Entries will need to be zipped up and uploaded via the YCN website along with the completion of a simple online registration. We do of course recognise the importance of the handheld, tactile and physical in demonstrating or enlivening a submission; so welcome the submission of selected physical elements (where you feel it’s appropriate) to support digital entries.



Work submitted in response to each brief is closely examined by the brands and organisations that wrote it, often alongside the agencies with whom they work. They are asked to draw up a shortlist of the submissions felt to be the most outstanding from all those received in response to their brief. The originators of these submissions are awarded with a Commendation. There are no First, Second or Third nominations, if you have been Commended this means your work has been chosen as one of the most outstanding entries to that particular brief, you will be Commended alongside a small number of other entries for your brief.

The judging process takes place over April and May, with six weeks set aside for the brands to carefully look through the entries. The results of Commendations are published online at the beginning of June 2013, those Commended will recieve a letter in the post.
