The Workshop Awards – who’ll win the mentors?

The Workshop Awards is over for 3rd Year Students at Bucks! We want to say a massive Thankyou to Jack and Stacey at 4Creative, Gina and Freya at WCRS and Sarah and Elliot (and Florence!) at Mr President! We can’t wait to find out who will win them as mentors.
We all really enjoyed the different briefs!
From generating quick strategies, to making something outrageous.
I think every single student learnt something valuable these last two weeks!
I know I certainly did, now with the semester ending, I want to make my work more engaging, digging deeper for strategies and inisights, then executing by triggering a human emotion.
We’ve all got something to work on for the future and to put in our books!
Exciting times are ahead as we discover who gets mentors and who their mentors will be! Stay tuned!

A round of applause for Tom & Morgan – hired at WCRS

“From day one they let us get stuck into big TV briefs and pitches, we had to do the smaller stuff aswell but it was a great opportunity. We got loads of stuff through on the McCain pitch which we lost to Adam & Eve and managed to get even more through on another pitch which is yet to come back. And the work we did on those is what got us hired. It meant giving up a months worth of weekends and some nights we didn’t leave until 1am but we’ve still loved every second.’

The ‘Sophs’ aka Sophie and Sophia – hired at Iris, congrats girls!
