Barnet and Southgate College Creative Arts student Chyna Denton is celebrating winning a silver award at the prestigious Creative Conscience Awards 2019.
Creative Conscience is a not-for-profit organisation founded by Chrissy Levett in 2012, the Awards reach over 26,000 people and encourage, recognise and reward UK students across the design spectrum for developing projects that are in line with their aims; which is to inspire students to apply their talents to socially valuable projects, promoting sustainability, freedom, social health and well-being. The hotly contended categories in the high profile competition were in a number of categories including advertising, interior design, fashion, film, photography and animation.
Chyna Denton’s Silver award was in the film and photography category, she said of her entry, “Social media has forced us to look and think a certain way. It forces us to compare ourselves to others and especially those that are deemed ‘perfect’. My entry entitled, NAK_D is addressing hurtful and humiliating names woman are called every day. The aim of the project is to educate and empower woman to love themselves including their imperfections. I really enjoyed myself at the Creative Conscience awards ceremony last week, where I networked with some amazing people in advertising and graphic design.”
Greg Haynes, Curriculum Manager at Barnet and Southgate College said: “Chyna’s work, and that of all the other students who entered the Creative Conscience Awards this year, have shown the creativity and drive our Media students have to try and make a difference in people’s lives. We are all very proud of Chyna and all of her tutors for this very well deserved award.”
