We're delighted to announce the nominees for the Guild Awards!

We’re thrilled to announce this year’s shortlist for the Guild Awards!

This year has been incredibly difficult for everyone as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, so we’re delighted to be able to recognise the incredible achievements of so many of you amid such unprecedented circumstances. It’s been so inspiring to see everything you’ve been getting up to over the last year and how you have made such a positive difference to our community!

We received a total of 297 nominations, and we are blown away by the hard work and achievements of so many of you. Whilst not everyone was able to make the shortlist, we want to thank everyone who placed a nomination to recognise the achievements of our wonderful students.

The Awards ceremony will be held on Friday 28 May, so please join us and all of the shortlisted nominees for what promises to be an exciting evening! You can watch the ceremony from 19:00(BST) live on Facebook or YouTube, or on our virtual awards ceremony platform, which will give you the chance to sit on a virtual table and enjoy the awards with your friends like if it was in person!
