STUDENT WINNERS CHOSEN AT THE BOOK AWARDS 2011 Last night marked another big evening for The Book, where we presented our annual Book Student Awards. The Book Student Awards is a joint venture between The Book, a specialist creative recruitment business based in Leeds and Leeds College of Art and Design. The students are tasked with responding to a real life brief as part of their 3rd year course work to give them a feel for life outside of the academic environment. The intention is to givethem a feel for the type of work they will have to produce when they get their real jobs once graduated. Angela Hough, Creative Consultant at The Book comments, "A big well done to all our creatives this year! You continue to prove how exciting this industry is going to be in the next few years as the new generation of creative’s just keep getting better and better. The Student Book Awards continues to go from strength to strength, so a massive thank you to everyone involved, including our wonderful judges, this years fresh faced contenders and of course the rest of the team at The Book!
