Loughborough student nominated for design industry award



Loughborough University Illustration student Simon Yewdall has been nominated for one of the design and advertising industries’ most prestigious prizes – the D&AD Student Awards.

The awards showcase the best emerging creative talent from hundreds of colleges and universities around the globe and attract thousands of entries each year.

Only around a hundred of those have been nominated for an award this year.

The winners, who each receive a coveted Yellow Pencil Award, will be announced on 2 July at a ceremony in London.

Simon (24), who originates from Uppingham, Rutland, submitted a series of five images in the Photography category of the awards.  His pictures were taken for the charity Photovoice, which encourages photography as a means of expression for those people who are often little heard in today’s society.

This year’s awards ceremony will be held at the Roundhouse, Camden, on Thursday 11 June 2009.
