BIPP also announced the winners of the Student Awards.

The BIPP Awards are amongst the most highly regarded in the industry, and success in these awards shows an incredibly high standard of work. Not only are the judges looking for composition and technical ability, but also creativity, interpretation and that ‘wow factor’.
