Registrations are now officially open for young creatives wanting to boost their careers to the next level.

Among last year’s winners were graphic designers Tin&Ed, photographer Nirrimi Hakanson, the youngest winner yet at just 17 and Romance was Born for their sartorial skills.

Each year the Qantas Spirit of Youth Awards (SOYA) offer creatives across a field of disciplines – from film and animation, photography and visual arts through to fashion, industrial and object design, music and visual communication – the chance to ‘step up’.

SOYA is open to designers and artists aged 30 and under, and offers the chance to win $10,000 in cash and flights and a coveted mentorship with a leading professional in their field. 

The winners will be announced at the Awards Presentation at the MCA on 11 November 2010. 

Register online here. Entries close 9 August 2010.
