AWARD SCHOOL OPENS IN BANGKOK




The first ever Bangkok AWARD School students will commence the infamous creative training program in Ideas next week, following the launch party at glamorous venue Spring.
AWARD Co-Chairman Philip Putnam welcomed students and guests, explaining the legacy of AWARD School and the amazing number of success stories from graduates, outlining the most well known former student, David Droga.
AWARD School Bangkok is being lead by local star Jureeporn Thaidumrong, ECD and Founder of JEH United. Her welcome speech in Thai invigorated the students, as did the inspirational words from Mark Ingrouille, President and CEO McCann Worldgroup Bangkok – the Gold Sponsors of AWARD School in Thailand.
Seventeen students have been chosen this year to take part in the unique program that focuses on creative thinking and the processes involved in coming up with great ideas and ultimately great ads.
An impressive line-up of lecturers and tutors will lead this year’s program, from

AWARD School students will spend the next 12 weeks working on briefs, the end goal being to establish a portfolio of great ideas worthy of showing potential employers.
AWARD School will culminate in a Graduation party, where the best work from each brief will be displayed and top students will be announced.
The winner of AWARD School Bangkok will go up against the top student in Australia, KL and Singapore for the overall best AWARD School Student in the region 2006.

Good one Lucy, Phil, Paul and the rest of the AWARD gang. Expanding the AWARD School concept, conceived by Ray Black way back in 1982, in Asia will probably do more for the region's creative output in the years ahead than any single initiative by anyone to date. (Even the arrival of Neil French in Singapore in the mid 80s!)

I'd rather continue to spend my time Donkey Punching lady-boys while in Bangkok.
