Introducing the 2017 MullenLowe NOVA Awards 17th May 2017


For the seventh year in a row, we are excited to partner with Central Saint Martins, one of the world’s leading art and design schools to celebrate and award the freshest, most innovative creative new talent from their graduating students. 

The MullenLowe NOVA Award winners are selected from the final degree shows at Central Saint Martins, covering courses across fashion, fine art, design, photography, science and more. From 1,300 graduating students, 40 are nominated by course tutors and just 15 are shortlisted by our expert judging panel to be in the running for a NOVA Award.

The MullenLowe NOVA Awards are presented to students whose work represents truly original creative thinking and execution, with an emphasis on craft, skill and exceptional accomplishment.

Our lovely client, Unilever, is also sponsoring one award (the Unilever Sustain-Ability Award) that recognises work with a focus on sustainability at its core.

Plus, for the second year running, you can get involved by voting in ‘YourNOVA’; our ‘people’s choice’ award. The voting will open in June so stay tuned for more updates on how you can participate and show your support for these incredibly talented students.

We are very proud of our partnership with Central Saint Martins and it demonstrates our commitment to supporting and nurturing the next generation of creative talent.

Over the coming weeks, you’ll be hearing more about the NOVA Awards as the programme swings into gear, but for now, follow our global social media channels and join the conversation using #MLGNOVA.
