CLIO AWARDS LAUNCHES THE 2008 CLIO FUTURE GOLD YOUNG CREATIVES PROGRAMME


Deadline for application submission is April 1, 2008

The 49th Annual Clio Awards and Festival, the global awards competition for advertising, design and interactive, in conjunction with ihaveanidea, is now accepting applications from around the world for the 2008 Clio Future Gold | Young Creatives Program, whose mission is to elevate and inspire up-and-coming talent in the advertising industry.
A total of 12 talented young copywriters and art directors under the age of 30 will be selected to attend the 2008 Clio Festival, May 14-17 in South Beach, Florida where they will be paired into six teams and engage in a 24-hour creative challenge. All work will be judged by a panel of world-renowned 2008 Clio Awards jury members and later presented to the client before an audience of Clio Festival delegates. The winning team will be awarded on stage at the Clio Awards Gala on the evening of May 16 at the Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater.
“Clio is committed to encouraging and rewarding the best young creatives,” said Tony Gulisano, managing director, Clio Awards. “This annual challenge provides the focal point to inspire, showcase and celebrate these emerging talents.”
Finalists in recent years have included young creatives from agencies such as JWT Singapore; DDB Sydney; FHV BBDO, Amstelveen, the Netherlands; Leo Burnett Kiev, Ukraine; Rediffusion DYR, Mumbai, India; FCB Sao Paulo, Brazil, Saatchi & Saatchi New York, and others.

How it works:
Qualified applicants 30 years of age or younger can visit www.ihaveanidea.org/futuregold for complete program details and guidelines, download the recommendation form to be completed by their creative director, and digitally upload a portfolio of work. Deadline for application submission is April 1, 2008, application fee is $150.
A team of experienced creatives will review all materials and select 12 applicants who represent the best talent from across the globe (two participants from each of six regions). Finalists will be notified by the Clio Awards on April 11, 2008, and arrangements made for them to receive complimentary Clio Passports granting admission to all festival events, as well as three nights of hotel accommodation.

this is a feeble attempt to squeeze even more money from us. Clio is overrated and the cost to enter is overinflated.
