ICOMO Advertising is organising 'The AD campaign Contest', an opportunity
for aspiring copywriters and visualisers to showcase their creative skills.
The contest is a talent search, which an ICOMO release claims, could open up new and unbelievable avenues in the advertising world for the winners.
What makes the contest unique is its workshop-based approach, which gives all participants the benefit of interacting with experts from the ad world and getting trained on vital areas of advertising.
The ultimate prize, however, will be awarded to two eventual winners - one from art and the other from copy - a prestigious internship in well-known ad agencies such as Mudra, Percept H and others. Plus, an ad created by the winning duo will be released in a leading newspaper.
The participants of the contest would receive intensive training by professionals from the advertising industry. The entire hunt is of eight days spread across two months.
The workshop module again consists of two phases. The first phase is the screening test and the intensive training workshop, while the second is the mentoring session.
The highlight of the sessions is an interaction on an one-to-one basis with top advertising professionals, where creative directors from top ad agencies will judge the winners. © 2005 agencyfaqs!
