GOOD CROWD TURN OUT FOR PERTH AWARD SCHOOL GRADUATION
An enthusiastic crowd of creatives and CDs turned out at the Vic Hotel to check out the future young guns of WA advertising.
“This was easily amongst the most competitive group of students to go through the course in recent years,” said WA AWARD School co-coordinator, Adam Barker, creative partner at Gatecrasher.
Consensus in the room was that there were at least half a dozen very strong folios on display.
Barker (right, second from bottom pic) thanked fellow tutor Andrew Tinning (right, bottom pic) , ECD of Marketforce and judges Steve Brown (Linc), Steve Browning (Vinten Browning), Lindsay Medalia (303) and Mike Edmonds (Meerkats).
Rod Harris (left, second from bottom pic) from The Sunday Times reiterated the strength of News Limited’s commitment to the national sponsorship.
Campaign Brief donated subscriptions to the first second and third place-getters, plus a copy of The Work for each.
The winning student was Adam Cannell (middle, second from top pic) who has accepted a position at Gatecrasher Advertising.
In second place was Alishia Atkinson and third place went to James Trimble.
