Introducing The John Byrne Award Ambassador for Edinburgh Napier University, Liliya Nikolova.


We are incredibly pleased to welcome Liliya Nikolova to The John Byrne Award team. Liliya is in her final year of media, digital communication and journalism studies at Edinburgh Napier. Liliya’s role is to encourage Edinburgh Napier students to share their creative work and ideas with The John Byrne Award.

In Liliya’s words:

The way we approach people and the way we approach art should be the same: with understanding, lack of prejudice, and above all, curiosity. I am excited to be a part of an organisation whose mission is to do precisely that. The John Byrne Award facilitates art to communicate and illustrate larger human emotions and concepts, creating discussions that have the potential to make a real change in the world.”

Niall, CEO of The John Byrne Award says:

“It is a pleasure to welcome Liliya on board. The world is changing quicker than ever before. We need forums where we can discuss what change we want and why. The John Byrne Award and Edinburgh Napier partnership will help Napier students to use their creative work to participate in such discussions. With Liliya facilitating the development of this partnership, I am confident that it will go from strength to strength.”  

The John Byrne Award Napier Ambassador role is generously and fully funded by Edinburgh Napier University.
