Mollie Turner’s winning entry


Earlier in the year, a new competition was launched for 16-18 year old’s aimed at introducing them to the careers and working practices of the creative industries. To deliver this UClan’s Creative Advertising degree course partnered with one of the country’s newest and exciting creative agencies – 21GRAMS, who devised a competition brief specifically for Level 3 students that helped them to demonstrate how their creative skills – whether they be design, illustration, writing or production – can really make a difference in the world.

The brief was for students to create a piece of communication that would make them stand out.  They were prompted to:

‘Think about what makes you, you. Whether it be your likes, skills, hobbies, heritage. This can then be used in your CV, website or creative portfolio to not only help you stand out but to give future employers a snapshot into who you are’.
