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 awards — D&AD, Lion’s, Clio’s, LIA’s and in 2019 was the winner of Cannes Young Lions UK.

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

What does the winner get?

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 find a little Spotted sticker on your work or in your portfolio, it means our judged felt your work stood out.
