The MullenLowe NOVA Awards highlight some of our best graduating work. This year marks a decade of the partnership and the nominated work is fittingly bold and brilliant.

Work is nominated from across art, design, fashion and performance. This year's projects span from queer botany tours and a kit for washing reusable menstruation pads to ceramics fired by bacteria or an exploration of the political power dynamics of the handshake.

Over the last decade, the MullenLowe NOVA Awards have focused the attention of the creative community onto some of the most outstanding emerging talent. Central Saint Martins’ students have challenged us to view things through a different lens and taught us how to use creativity in response to the world around us. It’s been a privilege to give graduating artists, designers and innovators a platform for recognition and to shine a light on the artistry, ingenuity and excellence of these brilliant minds as they extend their thinking beyond the educational environment.
Jose Miguel Sokoloff, Global President, MullenLowe Group Creative Council
