Two teams from Edinburgh Napier have triumphed in the inaugural IPA Scotland Student Advertising Awards.
Corina Cristea & Julie Geiger and Kendra Bodles & Laura Scott joined Edinburgh University student Mo Sriskulpinyo in lifting the prestigious prizes on the night.
Their winning ideas ranged from creating a campaign which encourages parents to be their children’s green superheroes, to using worms to highlight human food waste, to an app that connects to energy meters to display usage in real-time.
All five win paid placements within leading Scottish advertising agencies and the overall Grand Prix winners – Corina Cristea and Julie Geiger – also share the £1000 prize money.

Here you can find all the photos from this years immensely successful launch night. Press, Members of the public, friends and Family all joined together to help our students celebrate the incredible work produced for 2016’s final year projects.
It was an eventful evening with one of the best turnouts Napier has ever had! With a whole host of awards given and a fair few bottles of bubbly drank (Courtesy of Tennants), we believe it was one of the best launch nights yet!
