There is still one month left to apply for the eight EACA International Advertising Summer School. From 4 to 8 July 2016, students and young professionals will be trained by leading advertising practitioners at the Design Akademie Berlin, in Germany. During that week, participants will be inspired and will learn about the different communications disciplines. They will then apply all their knowledge and skills to their work in international teams on a client brief. This year’s challenge comes from the Deutsche Telekom, one of the biggest telecommunications companies in Europe.
Participants will be split into two groups according to their level of experience. The Foundation Course is aimed at Bachelor and Master students, while the Advanced Course is tailored to professionals with up to two years of work experience. A wide range of workshops can be found in the school programme, spanning from Strategic Planning and Storytelling, Creative Idea Generation and The Future of Digital to Behavioural Economics and Presentation and Pitching Skills. Since digital advertising is gaining momentum in the industry, this year’s programme is also introducing a course on Digital advertising bootcamp: interactivity through mobile and video delivered by experts of the Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB).
Following the success of the previous editions and quoting the Principal of the EACA International School of Advertising, Micky Denehy, the EACA Secretariat is convinced that participants of the Summer School 2016 will again show “a great mix of enthusiasm, motivation and teamwork” which will translate into impressive campaigns.
Students and advertising professionals wishing to attend the EACA International Advertising Summer School 2016 should send their application no later than 29 April 2016 to email@example.com. Selected participants will be announced at the beginning of May. More details about the location, courses and trainers are available on the edcom website.
