The C21 Spotted Creative Award is once again with us.

Our creative team are scouring select final degree shows to recognise and reward the talent of tomorrow. This year we’ve mixed it up by attending virtually which gives us a bigger reach to some institutions we haven’t visited before (and some old favourites).

We’ve been running our awards for over 10 years and have given many graduates the first step on their career ladder. Our first winner, John McPartland went on to forge a successful path in the industry, winning several prestigious awards. Last year’s winner Emily Sumner really stood out for her inventive and inspired portfolio. Unsurprisingly Emily was snapped up immediately after leaving UCLan.

Several other winners have gone on to work with us and help us become the agency we are today.

What’s in it if you win it?

This year’s winner will get a trophy for the mantelpiece and up to 1 month’s work placement in our creative studio. If you are lucky enough to receive a nomination posted to your socials, it means our judges felt your work stood out. Over the coming weeks our judges will carefully look at each students portfolio. You don’t need to do anything, just keep your eye’s peeled for a nomination.

The winner will be announced on our website and across social media. Good luck everyone.
