Ogilvy will be returning to host the Young Lotus Workshop at AdFest again this year, headed by Reed Collins, Chief Creative Officer, Ogilvy Asia-Pacific.

The Young Lotus Workshop 2024 is a two-and-a-half-day workshop designed to fast-track the careers of up-and-coming young creative teams across the region. It is one of the industry’s longest-running mentoring programs, providing the next generation of advertising leaders with valuable hands-on, practical experience since 2004.

The program is open to advertising professionals aged 30 and under, with teams selected by local representatives in markets across the region.


The Workshop, which will run Tuesday 19 – Thu 21 March, is divided into two halves. The first half is dedicated to talks and lectures by leading industry professionals. In the second half, attendees will work in teams on a 24-hour creative brief and present it to the Young Lotus committee.

Finalist teams will then present on stage in front of delegates at the Ogilvy Presents Young Lotus Workshop 2024 on Saturday 23 March at 11.50-13.00 and delegates will get to cast their votes for their favourite team to determine Popular Vote winner.

Reed comments, “I am so proud that Ogilvy is back hosting the Young Lotus competition for the second year in a row. Supporting the next generation of creative minds that will help drive the industry forward across the region for years to come. It’s gonna be a blast!”
