SH! Awards winners announced
The SH! Awards, organised by Leeds Media, took place last week and the winners were announced. The awards, supported by some of Yorkshire’s leading creative and digital agencies, celebrate young talent emerging from the region’s colleges and universities and raise money for the Meningitis Research Foundation.
The SH! awards were established by Brass in 2003 in memory of Stuart Hocknell, a talented young designer who sadly died of meningitis. Stuart believed passionately about forging strong links between the industry and local universities and was a champion of young designers. This belief is at the heart of the SH! Awards which celebrate creativity and inventiveness. Entrants can win work placements with Intermarketing, Brass or MadeByPi.
Second and final year students from a variety of colleges, universities and courses including graphic design, illustration, animation, art and games design, submitted examples of their best current work. Paul Phillips, Head of Design at Intermarketing, joined Creative Directors and designers from Brass, Elmwood, Numiko, Home, Made by Pi and Cool Pink on the judging panel, who selected Stephanie Ogilsby, James Lashmar and Polly Williams (pictured) as this year’s winners.
Steve Sowden, Managing Partner at Intermarketing said:
“We are very proud to be a sponsor of and to support the SH! Awards, to encourage and retain young talent in the region and fundraise for Meningitis Research. ”
