Speechless is the only way to describe how I felt when I was announced as a winner. I was really proud of my entry but never thought I'd win.

Our Year Two BA (Hons) Graphic Design students have taken the limelight at this year's Roses Student Awards, winning six of the nine briefs. The awards give students the chance to showcase their creative talent and secure placements with various design agencies.

The winning NTU students were:

All six students will now be considered for a gold, silver or bronze trophy at the Roses Creative Awards in Manchester, providing them with the opportunity to network with some the best agencies in the business.

Winner Rebecca Stephens completed brief five which was to create or select a 'non-word' and help it claim its rightful place in the Oxford English Dictionary. She commented: "Taking part in competitions like this is so beneficial, especially in the current economic climate where jobs are harder to get and everything is becoming more competitive. Speechless is the only way to describe how I felt when I was announced as a winner. I was really proud of my entry but never thought I'd win."

Katherine Webb, another of the award winners, added: "I found out about the Roses Student Awards through my tutors. In Year One I heard about the awards from Year Two and Three students, and was really eager to enter myself when the time came. My brief was called Waterways, and it was set in partnership with the Canal and River Trust. I had to come up with a way of incentivising the public to spend more time at their local river or canal. I loved every second of the project and it's the sort of thing I'd love to work on after I graduate."
