JWT London has set-up a new creative awards scheme which celebrates the best post and pre-graduate work and gives individuals the opportunity to have a paid placement at the agency.
By visiting the Yes Awards site
, individuals, who have not yet been employed within the advertising industry, can submit creative work which will be reviewed by a JWT London Creative Director on a monthly basis. Each monthly winner will then be invited to visit JWT London to meet that month’s judge for one-to-one career advice. There will then be an annual award – a ‘Big Fat Yes’ – where the winner will receive a three-month paid placement.
Users can submit an idea in any media by uploading either an image or sharing a video link online. The work must be an entrants own personal work and not linked with an agency or any other awards.
The Yes Awards has been set-up by JWT London creative team, Mark Campion and Adam Collins, who joined the agency in 2009. The creative duo are partly responsible for new creative graduate recruitment at JWT London.
Adam Collins, a Creative at JWT London said: ‘Our Executive Creative Director, Russell Ramsey, is a notorious 'NO' man. Because a 'YES' is so rare we decided to turn it into an award and give fresh talent the chance to have a foot in the door.’
Russell Ramsey, Executive Creative Director at JWT London, commented: ‘We’re delighted to launch this awards initiative and give a new generation of Creatives the chance to showcase their work.’
