Creative students from Central College were honoured at the Young Creative Awards on Wednesday 18 May at the Nottingham Playhouse. Central students were named winners in 5 categories with a further 7 receiving highly commended awards.

Hundreds of people attended the Awards, which aim to give people aged 13 to 24 who live, study or work in Nottingham the chance to show off their creative work, network with future employers and gain valuable industry experience and mentoring.

A record 350 young creatives submitted their work in 10 different categories this year to meet the 2016 theme of ‘Goals and Dreams’.

The awards are all about inspiring, supporting and encouraging creativity in the young people of Nottingham. These awards are becoming one of the most exciting events in Nottingham’s creative calendar. Every year I am impressed by the creativity, talent and professionalism of our young people here in Nottingham. We are proud to shine a light on their imagination, skill and dedication.

- Nigel Cooke, Chair of the Young Creative Awards

All of this year’s winners in each category received a cash prize of £100 and there will also be opportunities for mentoring, support or work experience from local creative businesses.

As in previous years, this was a really fantastic performance by our students and the staff supporting them. Well done to everybody involved and I am really looking forward to seeing some of the work at the end of year shows.

- Central College Principal Malcolm Cowgill
