Media Design School Students and Alumni Win at Young Guns

Two weeks after winning the Student Axis, Media Design School’s 2013 class continues to excel and earn recognition for their work.

Ellie Jones and Avani Maan won a student Young Guns Gold. Jones and Maan, who are currently interning at Barnes Catmur & Friends, also found out that their idea for Getty, The Living Photograph Series, was one of only two golds awarded to ad students worldwide.

The AdSchool also scored a Young Guns Bronze for Red Cross Ready by Jian Xin Tay and Kiran Strickland, the team that won the DDB scholarship internship.

Ben Polkinghorne and Anna Stickley, alumni from Media Design School, won two young Guns Golds for Amnesty International Trial by Timeline.

The YGA Chairman of judges, Nick Law concluded, “Clearly, the youngest in our sprawling, ever-changing industry are capable of a diversity of thinking and craft unimaginable 10 years ago. This year’s winner proves they are also capable of the sublime.”
