Now in its 12th year The Shelf Awards has helped some 130 graduates get started in the creative industry. This year we will again be offering our support to the next generation as they start out. Here are the graduates who have made the shortlist:
The Shelf Awards 2012
Dunja Opalko and Yonca Yilmaz

Course Leader: Liz Friedman
Simon Jensen and Joanne Scaife
Martin Headon and Olly Wood
Rosie Lewis and Danielle Mensah
School of Communication Arts

James Sellick and Sander Vos
University College Falmouth
Course Leader: Chris Waite
We look forward to welcoming them to The Shelf Awards 2012 where they will have the opportunity to showcase their work and impress an audience of specially invited guests including leading creative directors, copywriters, art directors, recruiters and other industry experts.
This opportunity can lead to all-important work placements. In turn these placements have in the past led to full time employment.
And the winning graduates on the night, uniquely selected by the votes of the guests themselves, will also receive the coveted Shelf – so called because the winners will be able to use it to display the awards they will no doubt be picking up in their future careers.
More details will be coming soon, but for now please joining us in congratulating the graduates who have made the shortlist for The Shelf Awards 2012.
