Taking place simultaneously in all participating cities worldwide on May 21, Portfolio Night has begun its official recruitment of up-and-coming advertising creative talent in China, including designers, copywriters, technologists, illustrators and more.
Portfolio Night is a high-energy evening of networking, talent-spotting, counseling and recruiting. The China event, hosted by Ogilvy & Mather will bring together up to 40 top creative directors in Beijing and Shanghai to provide young talent with the opportunity to learn from the best. Paid internships and potential job opportunities will be offered to candidates who showcase the most impressive creative portfolios. Participating creative directors will also get a chance to mentor and give back to the advertising industry.
Following the success of last year’s All-Stars competition, each city will nominate its best and brightest creative candidate to compete against one another in a week-long creative challenge in New York. Last year, the chosen candidate from Shanghai was part of the winning team to take the All-Stars title for their creative concept for Ford’s brief. This year, All-Stars candidates will again compete to develop a real world brief for a brand.
Tickets to participate in the Beijing are Shanghai events are available for sale at 100 RMB (US $16) each.
Tickets are allotted on a first come, first served basis before the May 18 deadline. To register and purchase tickets for Portfolio Night China, visit http://portfolionightchina.com
