The winning entries of the D&AD Student Awards were unveiled at a cork-popping launch at the Neu Gallery in Shoreditch Thursday. To capture the spirit of youth – that was the brief set out by the Dazed team a few months ago. Thirteen finalists and three winners were on hand to talk through their pics on the night: baby-faced soldiers, selfies and snapshots of loneliness. See the full selection and judge for yourself.
"Portraits of Contemporary Youth", an exhibition of photographs in collaboration with D&AD, Making Pictures, and Metro, and is now on display at 30a Redchurch Street, London E2 7DP.
