“We were again excited by the quality of the work and the thoughtful nature of the young people, the upbeat, the humour, and the imagination and talent on display. Some very serious issues were raised by the young people’s work. They creatively identified issues which concern them, including knife crime, the environment and depression.Our young creatives really shine an amazingly bright light on Nottingham and it seems a shame to pick out winners of awards, as all of the 77 shortlisted entrants were superb. The creativity and quality of the entries was fantastic.”

Jonathan English, the chair of the Young Creatives Trustees
