NEW YORK: Looking for the new creative generation

After a successful pilot in London in 2016, D&AD is bringing New Blood Shift to NYC this summer. And applications are due in by 5pm EDT on Thursday May 18th, 2017.

The design/advertising industry is in need of shift – in its way of thinking and doing work. D&AD understands that for this to happen, we need to access raw creative talent…talent that has not been traditionally educated or from advantaged groups.

New Blood Shift is a free intensive night school program for 20 selected individuals that will include workshops, talks by those at the top of their game and real client briefs that show young creative minds how to apply their abilities and craft, find paid opportunities and start on a path to a new career.

Applications to this program is open to creative individuals:

  • 18 years and older
  • Doesn’t hold a bachelor’s degree
  • Not currently enrolled in a four-year undergraduate program

Requirements for application is to submit up to 3 examples of creative work – could be some design, piece of artwork, a video, photographs, lyrics, story…whatever the applicant wants to share.

So if you know someone you think could benefit from this amazing program, and should be in advertising and design, then get them to apply. Help them be the new creative generation.
