Masters of Creativity 

Become a master of creative excellence

What is it?

Stepping up into a senior management role requires a well-rounded yet comprehensive knowledge of every area within creative communications, as well as the ability to develop and lead an efficient team. This five-day professional qualification is designed to help people with around seven years’ industry experience hone their skills in everything from selling creativity to strategic leadership.
  • Young Creative Academy cost How much? €3,495 (+TVA). Price includes full-week pass to Cannes Lions
  • Young Creative Academy dates When? 19–23 June 2017

How does it work?

The programme is divided into eight hour-long modules, each is lead by a professional at the top of their game: from award-winning creative directors to CEOs from the world’s biggest agencies. These are the people who know exactly what it takes to create stand-out work. 
Two modules are presented each morning, and throughout the week participants work in groups alongside a mentor to answer a real-life brief set by a global brand, before presenting their response on the final day. It’s a collaborative experience and a chance to learn with people from a host of different job backgrounds, company types and countries.
At the end of the five days, Gold, Silver or Bronze prizes will be awarded by the jury. The winning team will collect with trophy onstage during the Awards Show.
