The Young Creative Entrepreneur (YCE) awards, specially created by British Council, is unique in that it rewards the talent and initiative of young creative entrepreneurs from across the creative industries recognising the central role they play in the development of a competitive and sustainable creative economy. It champions those who find new ways to take creative work to audiences and communities – e.g. new models of production, distribution, and value – highlights the wider social, economic and cultural benefits in doing so.
It is of particular concern to MTN, British Council and Style House Files to provide ongoing support to young creatives via a platform for presenting their work. With the young designer of the year award, MTN and British Council offers young fashion designers the opportunity to be participants at targeted seminars and workshops facilitated by British Council and a chance to exhibit their collection in front of a select audience at Lagos Fashion and Design Week.
Every model stands a chance of winning the MTN Lagos Fashion and Design Week (LFDW) Young Model of The Year. As a model, you automatically qualify once you have attended the LFDW 2012 open casting call in Lagos, and have been screened and selected to model at LFDW 2012 from October 24 – 27 2012. All models will be short listed by a qualified team of experts in the fashion industry based on striking features, height and runway presence.
