NZ INDUSTRY TO JOIN TOGETHER TO SUPPORT THE NEXT GENERATION OF KIWI CREATIVES


On May 3rd, DDB is hosting a special industry-wide event to which they're inviting Auckland’s best young creatives to get their portfolios in front of some of the most experienced creatives in the industry.
It’s speed-dating, creative style. Each up and comer gets the chance to present their work to three Creative Directors, from across the industry, during 15 minute sessions.
This is actually part of a global Portfolio Night event, sponsored by DDB, in which young creatives are getting the chance in 28 different countries to get their work in front of senior creatives – all on the same day.
Says Toby Talbot, ECD of DDB: “I know when I started out in this business, just how hard it can be to get in to see Creative Directors, let alone land a job, So it’s great to get so many young creatives and CD’s together in the same place.
"Portfolio Night wouldn’t happen without the support of other creatives from other agencies who are giving up their time to join in the event. So special thanks from DDB to: Nick Worthington, ECD, Publicis Mojo, Mike O’Sullivan, ECD, Saatchi & Saatchi, Richard Maddocks, CD, Colenso BBDO, Zac Mroueh – CD Taxi Canada, Adam Oliveira, Interactive CD, Saatchi & Saatchi, Basil Christensen and Damon O’Leary, Joint CD’s, Ogilvy.
“From our side of things, I’ll be there together with Bridget Short and Regan Grafton, our Deputy CDs,” adds Talbot.

Portfolio Night will be held at the DDB office. There will be beers and pizzas. Portfolio Night kicks off at 6pm (doors open at 5.30om) and should finish around 9pm. Numbers will be limited, so you need to register quickly. Go to: www.portfolionight.com and click on Auckland event. You might even get to feature in a video clip which we’ll make and feed into the global event!
