ADELAIDE STUDENT TAKES OUT AWARD SCHOOL NATIONAL TITLE
An Adelaide entrant has topped Australia's most prestigious creative course in the advertising industry. Michael Gagliardi was awarded top national student of the 2006 News Limited AWARD School.
After achieving the best result in Adelaide, Gagliardi then went on to receive the highest score amongst a competitive group of 183 creative minds throughout Australia.
The Adelaide AWARD School Graduation was held at Tin Cat Café last Thursday night. Greg Knagge, Creative Director of Clemenger BBDO Adelaide, presented the graduation certificates.
“This is an outstanding achievement and it reflects the calibre of talent here in Adelaide. Adelaide has a strong heritage of commercial creativity and we have always ‘punched well above our weight’ in the national creative arena,” says Knagge.
In Australia the 12-week part time course runs from March to July each year in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Brisbane and Hobart. This year AWARD School accepted 183 students throughout Australia, and every year more than 800 students apply.
