2020 MullenLowe NOVA Awards Winners Announced 

MullenLowe Group is pleased announce the winners of the 2020 MullenLowe NOVA Awards, created in exclusive partnership with leading art, design and performance college, Central Saint Martins. 

2020 MullenLowe NOVA Award Winner: 

Sandra Poulson, BA Fashion Print, ‘An Angolan Archive’

2020 MullenLowe NOVA Award Runners Up: 

Joseph Standing, MA Industrial Design, ‘Aqua No More’

Mathilde Rougier, BA Fashion Design Womenswear, ‘Modular Augmented Capsule’

2020 Unilever #Unstereotype Award: 

Jahnavi Inniss, BA Graphic Communication Design, ‘Representation’ 

2020 YourNOVA Award: 

Sandra Poulson, BA Fashion Print, ‘An Angolan Archive’

As overall winner of the 2020 MullenLowe NOVA Awards, Sandra will receive a cash prize to help continue practice. Commenting on the accolade, Sandra says: “It feels incredible to win a MullenLowe NOVA Award. The process has been a lot of hard work and a very emotional journey, but it’s so great that people have been exposed to my work and see the value in it. I want to continue practicing and the Awards will allow me to do that with peace of mind, as I will be able to access materials, space and opportunities that are quite scarce right now, especially for people coming out of art and design degrees.”  

Runners Up, Joseph and Mathilde, and recipient of the Unilever #Unstereotype Award, Jahnavi, will also receive cash awards which they will put towards continuing their practice post-graduation. 

Jose Miguel Sokoloff, President of MullenLowe Group Global Creative Council and Chief Creative Officer MullenLowe Group UK says: “The MullenLowe NOVA Award programme is one of the highlights of my year and this year has been no exception. Once again, Central Saint Martins students have come up with work that pushes the boundaries not only of their field of study, but also of humanity and society, and have opened up our minds to completely new ways of thinking. It’s a great honour to invest in these brilliant young minds and give them a platform for recognition, but from the high quality of the work, I know this won’t be the only platform from which they will shine.”  

Professor Jeremy Till, Head of Central Saint Martins and Pro Vice-Chancellor of the University of the Arts London says: “Each year, the MullenLowe NOVA Awards collect an amazing archive of work which shows how our students and staff are responding to the times. Never has that been more important than this year, when our students have had to pivot round and address new ways of delivering, working and most importantly, new ways of thinking about this world we all face. I’m humbled by the students’ extraordinary effort and what they have been able to achieve over the last four months, and it’s fantastic that the MullenLowe NOVA Awards have been able to recognise that once again.” 

For the first time, the winners were announced during a live online event. The Winner, Runners Up and recipient of the Unilever #Unstereotype Award were chosen by a panel of expert judges while the YourNOVA Award was chosen by a public vote. Voting was open from Monday 24th August to Friday 4th September.
