“Portfolio Night serves as a vital event in our industry, connecting emerging talent with creative leaders who are at the top of their game. As a global event, it allows industry leaders to mentor the next generation while offering agencies a platform to recruit top young talent. It also provides local recognition and networking opportunities among peers, placing participating agencies on the global stage for their role in nurturing future stars,” says Tay Guan Hin, Creative Chairman of BBDO Singapore.
The program also includes Portfolio Night All-Stars, a weeklong virtual program where each city host selects one young creative in their market with the best portfolio to participate. These talented All-Stars will work in teams on a brief from a significant global brand sponsor, attend seminars, and participate in recruiting sessions. At the end of the week, each team will present their pitch, and the winning team will be flown to New York by The One Club for a week of events and networking opportunities.
“Portfolio Night is special because it’s our chance as an industry to give back and help guide the early steps of future creatives,” said Asheen Naidu, ECD TBWA Singapore. “We are truly grateful to our Creative Reviewers, who have given up their time to offer valuable advice and guidance, that will make this event a success.”
