Student Awards Briefs

Always a competitive arena. Student awards briefs are a great way for you to get noticed by industry professionals. Most awards also allow people with less than a couple of years’ industry experience to also take part. Some are free, others will charge. But if you win, the accolades are priceless.

D&AD New Blood Awards

The standout awards for students. But that also means stiff competition. Most uni courses will probably use one of these as a module as you can choose from a bunch of briefs across branding, design, creative, tech, copywriting and more. Winners are announced during the D&AD New Blood Festival, which is usually in July.
