Portfolio Night 9 to be Hosted by Ogilvy Dublin
We’re delighted to announce that we’ll be hosting Dublin’s Portfolio Night for the second consecutive year running. Portfolio Night, the world’s largest simultaneous advertising portfolio review event, will take place in Ogilvy’s Dublin offices on Thursday evening, May 26th.
Devised by Toronto-based ihaveanidea.org, advertising’s intellectual archive, the event sees thousands of aspiring young advertising copywriters, art directors and designers meet with the industry’s renowned advertising creative directors in a fast-paced evening of advice, networking and recruitment. The event is designed to help students and aspiring young creatives around the world break into the advertising industry and to showcase the next generation of creative talent.
On May 26th, Portfolio Night 9 will be held simultaneously in over 40 cities around the world, from Athens to Tunis, where the best of the present meets the best of the years to come, to celebrate creative talent and to guide emerging creatives as they begin their careers in the industry.
The event is also strongly being supported by The Institute of Creative Advertising and Design (ICAD), who is reaching out to its members. In a setting similar to ‘speed-dating,’ each participant will receive three 15-minute portfolio review sessions with three of the country’s most prominent Creative Directors, who will offer them advice on improving their portfolios. The evening will also provide useful networking opportunities in break-out sessions organised on the night.
Tickets are now available for the Dublin Portfolio Night 9 event. It costs just €20 to participate and emerging creatives with an advertising portfolio must register online at www.portfolionight.com
