AWARD School has announced its class of 2019, following an overwhelming response to the call for applications and a rigorous judging process.
In 2019, AWARD School received 518 applications, of which 216 were successful. This represents an 11 per cent increase in submissions compared to the previous year.
The 2019 AWARD School campaign aimed at increasing diversity of applicants, as well as, improving accessibility to the advertising industry as a career option for everyone.
This year, the course will expand beyond major cities to the Northern Territory, and to regional and rural Victoria.
In addition, three applicants have been accepted into the AWARD School Indigenous Scholarship Programme – an AWARD-first initiative made possible thanks to Pluto Media.
The students are based in South Australia, New South Wales and Victoria.
NSW AWARD School co-head Josie Burns said: “It’s awesome to see AWARD School becoming more accessible to a broader range of thinkers. We hope to keep building on this in years to come.
