News: Not­ting­ham Col­lege stu­dents win Young Cre­ative Awards 2022

Con­grat­u­la­tions to 16 stu­dents from across our cre­ative cours­es who have been recog­nised at this year’s Young Cre­ative Awards.

Three are win­ners plus a fur­ther 13 stu­dents were High­ly Com­mend­ed by the judges across a range of cre­ative cat­e­gories includ­ing Design and Archi­tec­ture, Pho­tog­ra­phy, Graph­ic Design, Fash­ion and Tex­tiles, Visu­al Arts and Film. 

Emily’s vir­tu­al­ly stun­ning entry is inspired by Picasso’s extrav­a­gant designs for the Bal­let Russes.”

The judges enjoyed Emily’s con­cep­tu­al approach, exper­i­men­ta­tion, fab­ric devel­op­ment and her high fash­ion final piece.”

Emi­ly, who exhib­it­ed a range of her work at our End of Year Cat­walk show, start­ed mak­ing her own clothes at home from a young age, but com­ing to col­lege has allowed her to expand her knowl­edge, and make the most of indus­try stan­dard facilities.

I’ve always been inter­est­ed in fash­ion and make clothes at home. Com­ing to col­lege has meant I’ve had oppor­tu­ni­ties such as using pro­fes­sion­al facil­i­ties, doing a run­way show and hav­ing teach­ers you can ask ques­tions to.

Anoth­er win­ner in the Fash­ion and Tex­tiles cat­e­go­ry was Caleb Stutch­bury, who was a joint win­ner in the 19 – 24 cat­e­go­ry. His indus­try-stan­dard tech­ni­cal draw­ings” were high­light­ed by the judges as one of the rea­sons for his win­ning entry. 

The judges high­light­ed Caleb’s indus­try-stan­dard tech­ni­cal draw­ings, com­plex gar­ment con­struc­tion and well-bal­anced designs.

They agreed that he has pro­duced an exquis­ite, high­ly wear­able final out­fit. Amazing.”

Caleb, who also exhib­it­ed a range of his work at our End of Year Cat­walk told us how the sup­port of his teach­ers has enabled him to get to where he is today.

I wouldn’t have been able to do it with­out the Col­lege and teach­ers’ guidance.

A Lev­el stu­dent Ava Chap­man was crowned win­ner of the pho­tog­ra­phy cat­e­go­ry for her strik­ing photographs.” 

The tonal qual­i­ty and grad­ing of these two black and white images very effec­tive and stood out to the judges imme­di­ate­ly. The por­traits are clas­si­cal­ly beau­ti­ful, sup­port­ed by a thought­ful con­cept that ref­er­ences the sur­re­al­ism of Dali. Very strik­ing pho­tographs indeed.”
