The next generation of creatives


“By all reports, the quality of portfolios and level of participant enthusiasm was truly impressive this year,” said Kevin Swanepoel, CEO, The One Club for Creativity. “As a global nonprofit organisation with a focus on professional development, it’s one of the highlights of our year to see the next generation of creatives show their stuff and provide ad and design professionals with the opportunity to give back to the industry and their local creative community by mentoring this young talent.”

Portfolio Night enables the best of the present – hundreds of renowned international creative directors – to meet and mentor the leaders of the future – thousands of aspiring young advertising and design creatives – in industry hubs around the world.

It’s a unique global event that serves as a high-visibility opportunity for agencies, schools and organisations to give back to the industry by guiding the earliest steps of future copywriters, art directors and technologists. Host agencies also benefit as Portfolio Night is a crucial tool for them in recruiting top young talent, provides them with recognition from local industry peers and gives them a place on the global stage as the ad world tunes into this one-of-a-kind annual event.
