This weekend: Enter the Young Glory Student Competition
Time to start entering the Young Glory competition for the 2017-2018 academic year!
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.
HOW TO ENTER YOUNG GLORY (SO THAT AAU WILL COVER YOUR ENTRY FEE):
STEP 1: REGISTER YOUR TEAM
Students should register their teams here: http://www.youngglory.com/membership/details
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.
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)”
STEP 2: ENTER THE COMPETITION FOR THE CURRENT MONTH
Go tothe submission page linked here: youngglory.com/submit
(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 2017, 11:59pm Los Angeles time
OPTIONAL: GET FEEDBACK ON YOUR COMPETITION ENTRY
