Our guys got an A for advertising at this years YCN awards.

The Creative Advertising course here at the University of Lincoln has been successful again at this years Young Creative Network awards. Six students picked up awards in a highly contested competition. The YCN awards opened up to European entries this year as well as British students so our guys did particularly well in the face of such high quality work.

Sarah Wisher & Molly Barnes won for the Sage brief. Ellen McGettigan & Mirella Spina, won in the  Syfy UK category and Matthew Holmes & Carys Thomas won with their entry for The England and Wales Cricket Board.

Many congratulations to the winners and we'll see you there at the awards ceremony in September, hoorah.

The highly coveted D&AD Black and Yellow pencils.

The D&AD New Blood awards were held recently in London and the Creative Advertising course at Lincoln was, once again, very successful. Joe Lovett, Jack Snell, Malene Loves and Elly Hogarth all scooped wooden pencils. Joe and Jack produced a thought provoking piece of work for WWF and Elly and created a very effective campaign for Talk Talk. Both teams did really well to earn wooden pencils considering the huge number of entries and the quality of work on display so congratulations go out to them.

These guys weren't the only winners on the night, Tom Watkins did fantastically well to get, not only a Yellow pencil but a Black one as well! Tom put together a very well executed campaign for WeTransfer. Tom's multi channel campaign for 'When I'm a dad' helps would-be fathers plan and take vows for this momentous step. The D&AD jury recognised that the work was so powerful and so well executed that Tom should be recognised as one of the best students at this years awards.

Being successful in student design competitions requires a lot of hard work and imagination and to achieve success at this level is truly outstanding so well done to all of our successful students.
