How to Enter Young Glory 2018-2019


Time to start entering the Young Glory competition for the 2018-2019 academic year! It’s free. You get to do cool projects. Why not go for it?

This is a competition with a new brief each month, running from September through April. All ADV students are encouraged to enter, at any and every experience level.

The deadline is the last day of each month, so if some of you planned ahead and worked on a submission for September, then there is still time! If not, keep an eye out for the October brief coming up this weekend and get started.







Students should register their teams here:

You must register with this link (instead of the submit page registration) for AAU to pay for your entry.

Make sure to write “Academy of Art University, School of Advertising” for the Agency/School.

Once you register, you do not need to do so again until next September, when the competition year refreshes.

By registering, students will also be able to accumulate points throughout the competition.

So if you haven’t already, find your creative bff and start working!


From Young Glory team:

“Young Glory is about tracking team points across all 8 rounds; it is important all AAU students pick their ‘team’ now. A team can be 1 person, or max 2 people. So AAU students will need to decide if they want to participate alone or with a partner. Once they decide that, they can register their details at the link…We’ll then be able to assign their points each round to their team (as opposed to one all-encompassing AAU team)”







Go to the submission page linked here:

(Once the student team is registered, it should show up in the drop-down menu on the submission page)


As the website states, you must be able to submit with a single url link.

September deadline: September 30th 2018, 11:59pm Los Angeles time

Get Your 15 Seconds of Fame

Wanna be an extra for a national commercial? We know you’re used to creating ads, now you can be in one. Next Wednesday, September 26th @ 5:00pm, Grammarly will be shooting AAU social media and fashion journalism instructor Stephan Rabimov for their next commercial for national distribution. Stephan has invited ADV students to help recreate a class environment at 180 New Montgomery Rm. 505 with Stephan “teaching” the class. Come dressed like you’re prepared to post a classy picture of you at the MoMA on Instagram. Or going to interview at a chill ad agency. First come first served until the classroom is full!

If you need any more convincing, it’s rumored this ad could get 100 million views. You could be as popular as a Drake music video. See you there.

AD2SF Event: Make Opportunity Equal

AD2SF invites you to join speakers from Tesla, LinkedIn, Periscope Data & Neo on Thursday, September 20. The panel will focus on how individuals can impact and grow diversity and inclusion initiatives in their organizations.

The evening filled with food, drinks, and inspiring stories directly benefits local nonprofit, Hack the Hood, which has developed an innovative model for introducing low-income youth of color to careers in the tech industry. As an Academy of Art student, you can get $5 off individual tickets with STUDENTDISCOUNT promotional code.
