About AWARD School Application Workshop

The AWARD School Application Workshop is a comprehensive one-day workshop where industry professionals will take you step-by-step through application tips, tricks, ammo and insider information. Essentially everything you need to know to give you a great shot at submitting the best application your brain can muster.
 

Is this for me?

We think this course is perfect, if:

  • You're applying for the first time
  • You've previously applied and missed out
  • Have never written an ad before
  • Only heard about AWARD School when someone sent you this link 5 minutes ago


About the day 

The day will be broken up into four modules, the first three following the format of the AWARD School application.

Module/Question 1 asks applicants a simple question. “Why are you applying for this course?” This module gives applicants tips on how to create an original and standout response to get noticed.

Module/Question 2 asks applicants to find a bad ad and make a great one for the same product. This module will focus on how to identify the core message that an ad is trying to communicate and to use as a basis to make a great one.

Module/Question 3 gives applicants a simple print brief that they create an ad for. Attendees to the workshop will receive a practice brief one week before and they’ll submit their work prior to the day. An industry professional will then work through some of the responses to demonstrate what a simple and clever piece of communications looks like.

Module 4 gives you some practical tips on what you can do between now and when the AWARD School application opens.
