It’s the educational program made famous for producing many of the biggest names in creative advertising, including David Droga, and AWARD School Asia has already proved its worth in its first full year.
2005 graduates and McCann Singapore creatives Teng Run Run and Gayle Jill Lim sold their AWARD School ad for TEFAL, and it has since gone on to make a finalist at AdFest and picked up a Bronze and a Silver for best use of media at the Creative Circle Awards 2005.
Under McCann ECD, Ng Tian It, their TV spot for BIC permanent marker picked up a Bronze at AdFest this month, which also scooped silver in Cannes last year, a Silver in the Creative Circle Awards, a bronze in Malaysia's MC2 awards, and a finalist in Young Guns.
Says Tian It: “The AWARD School is one of the best things to happen on the local scene. It represents the best hunger meter I can ever find to identify potential talents.”
AWARD School is completely unique in that it is a course in IDEAS and how great creative thinking applies to advertising. It provides students with insight into the creative process and develops the creative disciplines of art direction and copywriting.
Says AWARD Regional Committee representative Tay Guan Hin (JWT Regional ECD South East Asia): " This school doesn’t just give you a head start in advertising; it’ll boost your chances of working in the agency you’ve always wanted “.
The 12-week part time course will run from June to September in Singapore and Kuala Lumpur 2006. To be accepted into the course, each person must respond to the application questions, which will go online at www.awardonline.com at the beginning of May.
Applicants for AWARD School do not need any previous experience in advertising – AWARD is searching for people who understand great ideas in advertising.
