We’re now accepting entries for the 2019/2020 American Advertising Awards (a.k.a. Student Addy Awards). As always, the School of Advertising will be sponsoring a select number of entries. If you would like to have your work considered for submission and payment by the university, please complete the ADV Competition Entry Form by January 20, 2019. See the Greater SF Ad Club for more information and complete rules.
Need a break from finals? Come by tomorrow, 12/17 at the 5th floor gallery @ 11:00am. We’ll be hosting Austin O’Connor, an Associate Creative Director at Heat (advertising, not basketball). Meet this top-level creative who avoids making ads that feel like ads. Steal his tricks on landing dream jobs and winning tons of awards. Not only has he won them himself, but he has also managed to lead students to 4 Pencils and 15 Merits in the One Show. Hope to see you there!
Ideate is fast approaching — only two days left! Thank you again to everyone who applied for Fall ’19 and big congrats to the students who were selected! For those who won’t be participating in the Portfolio Review portion, we strongly encourage you to attend 2 other events we have set up: Panel Discussion & Interactive Showcase. These events are OPEN TO ALL and should be a lot of fun! Check out the flyer above for more info…
The other week we hosted a Zoom chat with the amazing NiRey Reynolds, the education manager for the One Club. If you missed the live chat don’t worry, we saved it for you all to view again! Whether it’s your first time or third time entering work, this is a great resource to get a leg up on the competition. NiRey gives insight over the Young Ones briefs, Young Ones ADC, and Young Ones Portfolio categories. Check it out using the link below!
YOUNG AND NOT HUNGRY
You’ve worked hard all semester and now you’re almost done.
That can only mean one thing: TIME FOR A POTUCK!
The legendary Advertising and WNM potlucks have become synonymous with food, fun and a chance to stuff your face and relax before it’s all over . (Think Rome, circa 350 A.D.)
Stop by the 180 New Montgomery building, Fifth Floor Gallery this coming Wednesday, Dec 4, between 6:00 and 7:30 pm and bring a dish of food and a friend. (BTW: Great way to get rid of the last of the turkey!)
Mingle and munch, have some fun or just sit around and commiserate with fellow students over how much work you have to do by end of term. Either way, you’ll leave happier.
There’ll also be a peek behind the curtains of what ‘s happening at Young & Hungry – the School of Advertising’s, faculty led, student run creative agency…AKA, the class that everyone says you should take onacounta, you know… it’s like having your first job and getting class credit for it. (Also: you’ll learn a ton, while having a good time doing it.)
Please stop by Wojo’s office (530B) if you have questions and puhleeeeze…put a little more thought into your dish DuJour than a bag of Lays potato chips….PIE, for instance. (cherry, of course.)
