About MullenLowe NOVA Awards

MullenLowe Group is extremely proud to be celebrating 10 years of our award-winning partnership with Central Saint Martins. In addition to sponsoring the annual degree shows, this year will see the presentation of the MullenLowe NOVA Awards for Fresh Creative Talent.

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 as they extend their thinking beyond the educational environment.

As a global communications network with creativity and challenger thinking at our core, the Central Saint Martins degree shows are an exciting opportunity to stay in touch with creativity in its purest form. I’m continually amazed at how connected the students are to the world around us and how they are engaging and reacting with purpose.

From 1,300 graduating students, just six MullenLowe NOVA Awards are presented to students whose work represents truly creative thinking and execution. Nominated work can be viewed at the Central Saint Martins Graduate Showcase in July and the winners will be announced at an online ceremony in August.
