Calling All Creative Young People

‘Nottingham, Future City’ – YCA 2017 theme.

The Nottingham Young Creative Awards 2017 are looking for young creative people to enter their work for this exciting and rewarding competition.

This year’s theme is “Nottingham, Future City”. No one really knows where the city of Nottingham is headed, but we all have ideas, dreams and some have plans.

“Be the change you want to see in the world.”

This is your chance to show the people of Nottingham what changes you want to see, by entering a piece of work from any of the 10 categories that reflects this.

Categories include:

  • Animation and digital media
  • Architecture and design
  • Creative writing
  • Dance
  • Fashion and textiles
  • Film
  • Graphic design
  • Music
  • Photography
  • Visual Arts

The closing date for entries is the 13 March 2017. After this date no further entries to the competition will be permitted.

Entering this competition means you can be a part of something truly great. Entering gives you the chance to meet likeminded, creative people and destroy the stereotype that young people have no ambition or motivation.

Entering gives you the chance to assist the Young Creative Awards in broadening Nottingham’s horizons and actually present to the city revolutionary ideas of how we can evolve for the better.

Who will live here and how might Nottingham people be living, shopping, working, or being entertained? Will we be a city of culture, science, sport or run by artificial intelligence?

We want to know what your desires and dreams are for the city about culture, creativity, local communities, politics, law, nature, technology, the environment and more.

Each generation contributes to the way our world develops. What do you want your generation to be remembered for? Changing Nottingham could be the first step in changing the rest of the world.

Nottingham, Future City could be in your hands.
