YA, the Young Alumni club from BNO is here for you. All you have to do is apply for our program and send in your work. These are the conditions for participation.

YA and Dude YA Special!

Designers who graduated between 1 September 2018 and 31 August 2019 from one of the educational institutes in our Huishoudelijk Reglement (see the overview on page 7) can apply for YA by submitting their graduation project, which will then be eligible for selection for the Dude YA Special! This special will be published in October 2019. There can be no correspondence about the final selection.

YA Hello!

If you are a designer and you graduated before September 1st 2018, or if you graduated at another academy then mentioned in our Huishoudelijk Reglement, you are still very much welcome at our monthly YA Hello! meetings. If you want to join, send an e-mail with your name and web address (if you have one) to and you will receive an invitation for these evenings.
