Our friends at the Institute of Practitioners in Advertising (IPA) are launching their Summer School 2008, which includes work experience in a top London agency.
The summer school will run during summer 2008. It’s mostly aimed at undergraduates, but we are assured that MA CCI students are more than welcome to apply. In addition to the work placement, the summer school will also provide a series of special evening seminars and social events. The IPA will coordinate the placements in “top agencies in London”. Places are limited so they expect demand, and therefore competition, to be fierce.
To select the right candidates the IPA is staging a competition. You would have to submit a short essay or a sample of your own creative writing. A specific brief has been prepared which you would have to answer. The closing date for submissions is Tuesday 27th May. The successful students will spend the summer working in an agency -and be paid £1,000 plus reasonable travel expenses.
For more information, the competition brief and copies of materials go to:
or e-mail them at firstname.lastname@example.org
Lost in CCI has good relations with the IPA as centre director Dr Richard Howells was one of their advertising awards judges last summer.
