OPPORTUNITY FOR YOUR BUSINESS TO SUPPORT YOUNG TALENT

After another bumper crop of entries, showcasing the creative talents of Nottingham’s young people, the winners of the 2021 Young Creative Awards (YCA) have been announced. Nottingham BID are proud to be sponsoring the installation of three artist entries across Nottingham city centre windows this October half term, with the aim of highlighting and supporting our city’s young, creative people.

Now in its twelfth year, the awards are open to anyone aged 11 to 24 who lives, studies or works in Nottingham. This year’s YCA's were entered by just under 600 young people from all over Nottingham. 31 talented young creatives have been named as the cream of this year’s crop.



Past YCA winners include singer-songwriter Rob Green, poet and performer Bridie Squires, dancer Jamal Sterrett Phoenix and make-up artist and Instagram sensation Romanie-Jade Tulloch. The annual YCA always gives a vibrant snapshot of the issues and themes occupying the minds of Nottingham’s young creatives, and this year has been no different. Entrants used their creativity to address important issues including racism, gender stereotypes, mental health, homelessness, female body image and, of course, the ongoing impact of Covid-19.


Nottingham BID and YCA are looking for 3 businesses (inclusive of all sectors, from office to hospitality, from barbers to retailers) to take part in hosting one of the pieces of work in their window. This exhibition will be live during October half term and promoted via our consumer facing channel, It’s In Nottingham, as well as via the YCA networks.

Installation, including cost, will be covered by Nottingham BID. Work will be installed and in place between 11 - 31 October 2021.

To take part in this one off opportunity, please email amy@nottinghambid.com by Monday 23 August, preferably with a snapshot of your proposed window.
