The three winners in the Photography category of this year's Young Creative Awards are about to get their work showcased in the windows of city centre businesses this October, thanks to Nottingham Business Improvement District (BID).
We are delighted to be working with Nottingham BID to celebrate the talent of some of this year's Young Creative Awards winners. Nottingham BID is a city centre business alliance, with more than 700 members in the retail, leisure, office and education sectors in the city centre. Nottingham BID's aim is to put Nottingham firmly on the map as a regional and national city of choice for shopping, leisure, work and study by delivering a range of initiatives which are driven and shaped by the members for their benefit.
This October, Nottingham BID has partnered with Young Creatives Nottingham to provide an opportunity for work by this year's three Photography category winners to be displayed in the windows of city centre businesses - exposing their talent to a variety of people and as well as creating vibrant windows for businesses.
Artwork by Daisy Bartram (age 13), Rosie Baird (age 18) and Fioralmpa Banousi (age 22) will be on display from Monday 11 October to Sunday 31 October 2021 and can be found at The Cornerhouse, Clean Cut Kitchen (Victoria Centre, upper mall) and Sharps Bedrooms on Lister Gate.
Commenting on the event, Lucy Stanford, Director of Operations at Nottingham BID said: “We are delighted to be supporting Young Creatives Nottingham, it is a great way to make the city centre more visually appealing and give some points of interest. We look forward to seeing people stop to look at the artworks and discover what talented youngsters we have in the area.”
Nick Lawford, Director, Young Creatives Nottingham said: "We are extremely proud to be working with Nottingham BID and key city centre businesses to celebrate the work of some of Nottingham's brilliant young creatives. This year’s Young Creative Awards was entered by nearly 600 young people from all over the city and, as always, our expert judges were bowled over by the talent on display.
"It is very exciting to be showcasing the work of the three YCA 2021 Photography category winners - Daisy, Rosie and Fioralmpa - in Nottingham's vibrant city centre, bringing their fabulous images to a huge new audience. Thank you to Nottingham BID for making this happen."
