AWARD School, the leading Australian ideas programme for aspiring art directors and copywriters, opens for applications on February 9.
Running for 34 years, AWARD School has equipped thousands of graduates with the skills to forge careers in advertising agencies, technology companies, at the helm of start-up companies, or working for TV programs and publishers. No matter the field, the ideas and application of creative thinking are more important than ever before.
Just last year, the winning ideas of AWARD School’s top student Tom Lawrence took him to NYC to meet David Droga. As part of his trip, he interviewed some of Australia’s greatest advertising exports including Leo Premutico, Justine Armour, Sarah Barclay and Suyin Sleeman – all whose careers began at AWARD School.
Mike Spirkovski, AWARD Chair and CCO of Saatchi & Saatchi Australia, said: “AWARD School has been globally renowned for decades and has helped nurture some of Australia’s most talented creatives, spanning across the country and the world. It is a powerful way to experience first-hand, the power of the BIG IDEA, through challenging briefs and direct exposure to the top Agencies and their talented tutors. There is no better way to kick start your career as a creative than taking on the challenge of AWARD School.”
The 12-week part time course runs from April to August each year in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide. The course consists of a Monday evening lecture and Thursday evening tutorial, held inside agencies.
