The announcement comes ahead of three AWARD School information nights which will be held in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth on Thursday 12th February, informing prospective students on course content, entry requirements, and what to expect from the application process.

The application brief will be released and available to download from the AWARD School webpage on Friday 13th February.  Successful applicants will be accepted onto a 12-week intensive course covering 10 briefs, spurring idea generation across a range of different mediums, with focus on the many new digital opportunities available to today’s creatives.

AWARD Chairman, Mark Harricks, said: “Thanks to all of this year’s AWARD School Heads for dedicating their time and skills to AWARD School. It is the high calibre of mentors that draws such large volumes of aspiring creatives to apply each year. We recommend hopefuls come along to our information nights if they are unsure about the application process or course content. The competition is high and the program is tough, so make sure you know what you’re getting yourself in to!”
