Droga5 Announces D5in10 Academy Programme to Drive New Wave of Creatives

Droga5 has announced that it is launching a new programme called the D5in10 Academy. The academy is an effort to invest in the future of diversity within the industry by fostering the talents of individuals from all backgrounds who are interested in working as creatives in advertising. The programme will give them an opportunity to learn the craft of advertising from one of the industry’s most awarded ad agencies.

D5in10 aims to provide participants with a complimentary 10-week introductory course designed to teach creators of all backgrounds the essence of advertising, including: concepting, building campaigns, art direction, copywriting and more. There are 20 spots available for high-potential creatives to participate in this introductory program. Classes will begin September 19th, 2017, and are held at Droga5's New York office.

The goal is to find people with a creative spark who haven’t necessarily figured out where to apply their talents, had the opportunity to build a portfolio in ad school or gotten a foot in the door at an ad agency in some other way. The agency will provide them with tools to succeed through hands-on instruction from Droga5 professionals.
