Next Wednesday (May 22) is a big night for aspiring creatives in the advertising and design fields. The One Club’s annual Portfolio Night will take place in more than 24 cities around the world.
Long recognized as the world’s largest advertising portfolio review program, Portfolio Night is a fast-paced evening of advice, networking and recruitment.
Each city’s event has a local host.
In Detroit, WPP’s GTB is doing the honors. Other local hosts include: AlmapBBDO (São Paulo); Arnold (Boston); B&W (Beirut, Dubai); BETC (Paris); Brokaw (Cleveland); Círculo de Creativos (Buenos Aires), and Clube Criativos de Portugal (Lisbon).
Edelman is hosting in multiple cities: Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco.
The program also includes Portfolio Night All-Stars.
Each city host selects one rising creative in their market judged to have the best portfolio. Those selected will have the opportunity to be flown to New York and be part of a team that will work at The One Club headquarters on a creative brief assignment for a major global brand.
“Portfolio Night serves as the gateway for young people to enter the industry,” said Clare Meridew, Chief Creative Officer, GTB. “It enables the creative leaders of today to meet, mentor and possibly even hire the next generation of creative talent.”
So kids, if you haven’t made plans to attend already and don’t have any other potentially career enhancing events scheduled for next Wednesday, now would be an opportune time to check out the details.
