Portfolio reviews with Advertising Agency Recruiters

This is a terrific event put on by One Club. It’s free, but you need to register for a ticket.

The One Club, an advertising industry organization (501 C 3) with a focus on education and creative excellence in advertising, is excited to announce the return of our annual creative career fair,  “Here Are All the Black People”. HAATBP will take place on Wednesday, September 24th at the Metropolitan Pavilion in New York. 

Along with agency partners, we are presenting “Here Are All the Black People” to address the issue of the lack of diversity in advertising, specifically in the creative departments.   This event will provide real solutions to hiring people from diverse backgrounds.  At HAATBP, there will be discussions and testimonials from professionals in the industry, portfolio reviews with agency recruiters and opportunities for networking with creative professionals and other attending participants. We will also offer personal brand building sessions, website creation seminars, and mentoring sessions. 

Our goal is to create career opportunities for multicultural aspiring creatives, who are looking to enter the industry by garnering interviews or a commitment for an internship.  We hope that by exposing aspiring creative talent to the professional opportunities in advertising, we will begin to change the face of the industry. Agency recruiters and creative directors will be there, and we hope to bring in as many talented people from across the country as possible.

7th International Student Poster Competition Skopje

Skopje is inviting all students worldwide on BA, MA and PhD studies of fine arts, design, visual arts, to enter the 7th International Student Poster Competition.

The main objective of this competition is the world peace and the human rights issues.Can a designer act as peacemaker in the world?

So far the known synonyms for “peace” include “amity,” “friendship,” “harmony,” “concord,” “tranquility,” “repose,” “quiescence,” “truce,” “pacification,” and “neutrality”. While some of these descriptions are appropriate, they are still quite limited in describing both the nature of peace and the role of the peacemaker.

Any attempt to articulate the nature of peace and peacemaking, therefore, must address those conditions which are favorable to their emergence. Freedom, human rights, andjustice are among such prerequisites. Also included are proactive strategies such as conflict resolution, non-violent action, community building, and democratization of authority.

« Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that. » (Martin Luther King)

Go beyond stereotypes and try to achieve simple and direct communication without limitations. Think creatively and artistically.

There is no entry fee.

All students worldwide from faculties/academies/colleges of fine arts, design and visual arts are invited to enter.

Two poster winners will be awarded with equal prizes:
• Participation in jury work 2015 for the 8th Skopje Poster Festival (fully covered expenses)
• Organization of poster exhibition in MKC Gallery 2015
• ICOGRADA Certificate
