Awards

Each year we organise a Degree Show Awards event in association with Creative Lancashire.

Creative Lancashire support the growth of creative enterprise through a programme of networking events, sector specific guidance and information on raising funding.

Each staff course team choose one student from their course to nominate. This year we received 16 nominations for the five award categories:

  • Craft
  • Enterprise
  • Insight
  • Society & Sustainability 
  • Technology innovation

Each award is sponsored by a member of the creative industries, who form part of the judging panel. Each winner is offered an opportunity that can help them to launch their careers.

Just being nominated for an award is an achievement. We congratulate all the nominated students and give warm thanks to all this year’s sponsors.
