Last night the Perth advertising industry celebrated the end of the 2007 News Limited AWARD School at The Vic Hotel in Subiaco.
AWARD Executive Committee Members Andrew Tinning and Adam Barker welcomed the crowd and announced the top student, Jadranko Silic.
Says Tinning, Executive Creative Director Marketforce: “I've hired one of the students full time as I did last year and the year before which confirms to me at least the great job AWARD School does in unlocking and unleashing some of the country's most promising new talent.”
Barker, Gatecrasher CD and partner said: “We’re involved in AWARD School every year because there’s no better way to nurture new creative talent in our industry. We’ve hired top graduates for three years running and encourage all other agencies to do the same”.
Other creatives involved in tutoring include Murray Laird, Juilia Elton-Bott and Andrew Chu.
Jadranko will now go forward for National Judging against the top students in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide and Hobart to compete for a place at the Caxton Awards weekend seminar in Byron Bay.
AWARD School thanks local industry magazine Campaign Brief WA for supplying prizes to the top three graduates.
AWARD School is a 12-week part-time programme and each week students are required to attend a lecture and tutorial class. At the latter they are given one fictitious brief, each time on a different medium of advertising.
Students are accepted into the programme via a competitive application process, only 180 students are taken across Australia each year out of 800 applicants.
