Applications for AWARD School are now open, but get in quick, the deadline to apply is Thursday 21 February.
AWARD School is calling all aspiring creatives to enter their application for the 2019 course before the final deadline.
To mark the call for applications, The Communications Council has released a series of top tips for prospective students who are interested in applying to the course.
The guide is now available on the AWARD School Applications FAQ page, which can be viewed here.
Applicants are also encouraged to check out last year’s winners folios for ideas here.
No experience is needed, and anyone with the creativity gene is encouraged to apply.
Indigenous and regional-based talent are encouraged to consider applying, with half a dozen Indigenous Program Scholarships on offer this year.
The 2019 course is also expanding beyond major cities to the Northern Territory, and to regional and rural Victoria.
People who are already working in the industry (12 months+ experience as an art director or copywriter) but have missed the boat on a formal creative course are also welcome to apply this year.
Terms and conditions will apply, including not being eligible for a Top 10 position.
Course coordinators said the one and only thing entrants need to be a creative is energy.
An application Workshop coordinator said: “One thing ad creatives do day in and day out is problem solving. We get a problem, we solve it. That is what we do and that is all we do.
“Do not spend hours perfecting your executions until you are sure they are the ideas you want to go with. Do hundreds of ideas as terrible scamps”.
