The Royal Opera House and the YCN Student Awards 2015/16

YCN (You Can Now) is a curated, creative network which helps imaginatively minded people and organisations to make relevant new connections with new young designers and creative minds. It runs an annual student creative competition.

We saw this an opportunity for the Royal Opera House to get a young person’s perspective on opera as an art form and to help us create a new identity for the ROH Students scheme.

After receiving hundreds of incredible ideas – we shortlisted 10 winners and chose to run with this one from Kieran James as we felt it tapped into the heart of what opera (and ballet) could be for our students – a new first time in a world when they pass by so quickly.
