10 Years Of The MullenLowe NOVA Awards

10 Years Of The MullenLowe NOVA Awards

We’re excited to announce our continued partnership with Central Saint Martins, sponsoring their annual Degree Shows and presenting the MullenLowe NOVA Awards for Fresh Creative Talent. This year marks 10 years of partnership, formed to support emerging talent, creative excellence, and innovation.

MullenLowe NOVA Awards judge, Jose Miguel Sokoloff, says: “Over the last decade, the MullenLowe NOVA Awards have focused the attention of the creative community onto some of the most outstanding emerging talent. Central Saint Martins’ students have challenged us to view things through a different lens and taught us how to use creativity in response to the world around us. It’s been a privilege to give graduating artists, designers and innovators a platform for recognition, and to shine a light on the artistry, ingenuity and excellence of these brilliant minds.”

All nominees for the 2021 MullenLowe NOVA Awards will be exhibited online on the Central Saint Martins Graduate Showcase, covering courses across art, design, fashion, and performance. From 1,300 graduating students, 49 are nominated, 14 are shortlisted with just six awards will be presented to students whose work represents truly original creative thinking and execution.

In addition to one overall winner and two runners up, MullenLowe Group longstanding client, Unilever, will once again present the #Unstereotype Award to work that reflects progressive thinking and breaks away from limiting and outdated stereotypes. New for 2021, Creative Boom, a leading platform dedicated to the creative industries, will choose the winner of the inaugural Creative Boom Conscious Award, given to a project that reflects, responds to, or champions lasting positive change in society.

For the 6th consecutive year, we will also present the YourNOVA ‘People’s Choice’ award as voted by you! Voting will open later this month, so stay tuned for more updates on how you can participate and show your support to these incredibly talented students.
