Eligibility criteria includes age group of 21- 40 years; a person who is running his or her own enterprise/ organisation; either uses any of the disciplines of design to achieve a social impact or uses a digital tool or application for use in a creative sector.
The winners will travel to the UK during a trade event for networking with international winners and UK peers.

Since 2005, the Young Creative Entrepreneur Awards have been given away to recognise excellence in the fields of Design, Music, Fashion, Screen, Interactive, Performing Arts, Visual Arts, Communications and Publishing.
The Awards give entrepreneurial and creative talent a platform to engage and collaborate with the UK creative sectors. The programme is unique in that it rewards the talent 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.
The Young Creative Entrepreneur Awards 2012 are supported by stylekandy and exchange4media.
