2017 – Nottingham Future City

In 2017 the theme of the Young Creative Awards was “Nottingham, Future City” and entrants were asked what changes they want to see for their city in the future. Who will live here and how might Nottingham people be living, shopping, working, or being entertained? Will we be a city of culture, science, sport or run by artificial intelligence?

“Be the change you want to see in the world…”
