    Organised by D&AD, the competition provides a chance to address a real life challenge for a top, international brand. Your ideas will be seen and judged by the representatives of the brand, along with a panel of top creatives from around the world, helping to give young creatives that much needed step on the career ladder.

    In addition to 16 briefs set by global brands such as Nokia, ASOS & the BBC, this year a live brief has been set by Al Gore in collaboration with WPP to tackle the Global Legacy project - changing habits to change the world.

    Up to five people can work together and enter as a team. Students and non-students can work together too, but everyone on the team must be eligible to enter. If you’re a student you need a tutor to enter. If you’re not a student, you don’t need to have a tutor.

    Entry fee is £20 (approx. 32 USD). For D&AD Members it’s £15 (approx. 24 USD).
