The APG Young Talent Award

Hi all

To try and attract the most talented and creative students into the industry, the APG has recently launched a new prize to celebrate the power of students’ creative thinking. The APG Young Talent Award is a nationwide competition that asks students to design an original brand from scratch that will appeal to people of their age. The entries will be judged by a panel of experts from the leading agencies in the industry as well as a venture capitalist looking to invest in the very best thinking.

This is a great opportunity for students looking to get into advertising. Not only will you get to flex your creative muscles at something far more interesting than anything else going on but you also have the chance to bathe in the glory of having your work published and seen by pretty much anyone who is anyone in the industry.

Check out the APG site to find out more.

....also I'm one of the judges so am more than open to bribery:

Thanks for the post! Will be entering this for sure :)

It's most certainly worth a go. Getting work published is something that would certainly get you noticed when interviewing

What's your price? ;)

Would love to enter, and already have an idea half mapped out (well in my head at least), but being an old bugger I can't. Are there any other comps around for a slightly more senior AdGrad (25)?

Ed: I'm 24 myself. The awards for mid twentysomethings and above are called APG awards. ;)

In all seriousness, I don't think so - but will have a look and see what I can find.
