Acclaimed Australian creative course, AWARD School has kicked off its annual enrolment campaign, adopting a more egalitarian approach for 2022.
AWARD is encouraging people from all backgrounds, within and outside the ad industry to apply for its 2022 program, with the only criteria being a desire to bolster inner creativity, develop exemplary content, or grow a commercial creativity career with confidence.
“We wanted to quash any self-doubt that often creeps in for aspiring creatives who are looking to apply this year,” said AWARD School joint national head, Katrina Alvarez-Jarratt.
“The simple fact is that creativity doesn’t care about your age, gender, career experience or credentials, it just wants to be utilised to help you reach your full potential.”
Several information sessions for aspiring students will run throughout February, prior to applications opening on February 10.
These sessions include the “Ask an Alumni Anything” webinar, a virtual information night, and one-on-one yarns for Indigenous applicants which is a new addition to the AWARD School Indigenous scholarship program.
“It’s very exciting to be embarking on a new year of AWARD School which represents another chance to find a fresh crop of brilliant creative minds,” said fellow national school head, Matt Chandler.
“They’re needed now more than ever. We’d love everyone in the industry to encourage creatively minded friends or colleagues to apply for this year’s program.
“It goes without saying that the more diverse a collection of characters we have participating in the course, the more exciting the future of our industry looks.”
This year’s programs – based in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane and Adelaide – combine pre-recorded and live lectures as well as face-to-face learning as part of weekly tutoring sessions.
AWARD School will also run an online program for students from regional and metro Australia, New Zealand and Southeast Asia following the same timetable. All elements of the online program, including graduation, will be virtual.
