Ad Stars calls on junior creatives to register for 'New Stars' for the chance to be discovered

NewStars.jpgAd Stars is inviting junior creatives with less than three years' experience (or those aged under 30) to register for this year's New Stars competition. Registration deadline is Friday, June 9.

The New Stars program encourages young, talented creatives to represent their country and compete in a 30-hour creative challenge for the chance to be "discovered".

During the competition, each team will have 30 hours to respond to a client brief, racing to come up with solutions that are both creative and strategic.

The five best teams will have the chance to collect Gold, Silver or Bronze trophies at the end of the week as voted by Ad Stars 2017 judges.

To be eligible, you must currently work for an advertising agency and have less than three years experience, or be under 30 years old.

Says Eui Ja Lee, co-chair of the Ad Stars executive committee: "Last year, we welcomed 26 teams from far and wide - including one team from Hungary. The New Stars program is an incredible opportunity to meet people from other cultures and collectively exchange ideas and learn from each other."

Says Hwan Jin Choi, co-chair of the Ad Stars executive committee: "I encourage all ambitious creative professionals to register for the New Stars competition. It is a great opportunity to learn from seasoned advertising professionals and to get ahead in your career."

This year's New Stars program will run during Ad Stars 2017 in Busan, South Korea from 23rd to 26th August.
