The New Stars Competition is an opportunity for young creatives to travel to South Korea and learn about the craft of advertising from leading executives, while experiencing the technology and trends driving North Asia's advertising market. The program runs over five nights from 21st to 25th August in the beachside city of Busan, which is one of Asia's most vibrant creative hubs, home to the Busan International Film Festival.

After taking part in a series of challenging workshops and seminars, competitors will be given a 30-hour creative challenge to put their skills to the test. Each project will be judged by Ad Stars' elite panel of judges, and the five best teams will have the chance to collect Gold, Silver or Bronze trophies at the 2018 Ad Stars Awards. On top of having their work celebrated on a global stage, the team that wins Gold will win complimentary tickets to Ad Stars 2019.
