How The Shelf Awards Work


The Shelf Awards are open to students approaching graduation. As well as the opportunity to pick up the prestigious Shelf, the event also provides a fantastic networking opportunity for the graduates, giving them a chance to sell themselves and their talents to secure work placements.

  • This free event is open students approaching graduation who are interested in getting into the creative industry
  • Students who are short-listed will be invited to The Shelf Awards on the 5th July hosted at the IPA offices in Central London
  • Uniquely the winning graduates are decided on the night by votes cast by guests made up of Creative Directors, Copywriters, Art Directors, Recruiters and other industry experts
