Our host for BYA Awards 2014 is the BAFTA Award winning writer, director and actor Adam Deacon

“When I was growing up there was hardly anything that really celebrated the things kids worked hard at in their lives. Once we start showing our young people that we appreciate their efforts through award ceremonies like BYA Awards, they start feeling good about themselves and push themselves even more to achieve.
I am proud to have been invited to host this year’s BYA Awards on 23rd November and look forward to an inspiring day.” - Adam Deacon, host of BYA Awards 2014.
The BYA Awards take place on Sunday 23rd November 1pm at the Grade II listed Walthamstow Assembly Halls, Forest Road, London E17 4JD.

We are excited to announce that our new Patrons are Sony Epic recording artists ‘Rough Copy’.
Some of you may remember then from 2013’s ‘X-Factor’ show, but since then they have recorded and released their first single and video with Epic called ‘Street Love’; have toured the UK playing at many gigs and festivals, and are in the studio working hard on new material.
Rough Copy member and founder Kaz Ajobo said “We are honoured to be patrons of Youth in Excellence and the BYA Awards. I was a finalist in 2011 for the BYA Awards and now stand as an ambassador. We believe that it’s very important for young people to have positive role models to relate to.
Life isn’t always straight forward or easy. There are times that you feel like running away and giving up. This is why an organisation like Youth in Excellence is needed – to provide the support, guidance and training to young people and families, to help them develop and fulfil their potential.
Rough Copy are looking forward to working alongside Youth in Excellence and being part of the BYA Awards 2014 in November.”
