AWARD chair Mike Spirkovski said it is an unmissable opportunity to learn from the who’s who of industry.

“We are thrilled to announce our 2018 school heads, who not only have built an enviable reputation for leading the creative landscape, but also a track record of inspiring, mentoring and discovering untapped talent around the country,” he said.

“The calibre of school heads this year reflects the high standard of AWARD School, which is internationally renowned for launching the careers of some of our industry’s biggest names including David Droga, who took out the school’s top prize back in 1987.”

AWARD School is Australia’s pre-eminent training program for aspiring creatives, copywriters and art directors. The 12-week part time course will run from April to July in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane, and Adelaide.

Successful applicants will be covering 10 briefs, spurring idea generation across a range of different mediums, with focus on the many new digital opportunities available to today’s creatives.
