This is just a quick post (on my lunch break I might add!)
I remember reading something about D&AD a little while ago about the change with there student awards, and wondered whether I had imagined it! I sifted back through my emails and was delighted to realise that I didn’t just make it up! Instead of being the D&AD ‘Student awards’, its been changed to the ‘New Blood’ awards. If you hadn’t guessed it, this means recent graduates are able to enter (and anyone under 24), so I’m quite glad I have a few more years left to enter! It’s nice to have a bit more of an opportunity.
The 2014 briefs go live at the end of October, with briefs from big brands such as ASOS, Nokia and Sky. I look forward to participating again this year!
