To nurture young talent in the industry by giving them an opportunity to showcase their ideas to the most creative minds of the country, JWT India has announced the launch of the 11th edition of Portfolio Night. Portfolio Night is an annual property of ‘IHAVEANIDEA’, which is scheduled to be held on May 22, 2013.
Portfolio Night this year will take place simultaneously in over 20 cities on May 22 across the world, including Athens, Austin, Beijing, Boston, Costa Rica, Johannesburg, Los Angeles, Montreal, New York, Paris, Sao Paulo, Stockholm, Tokyo and Toronto amongst others.
On the global platform, the event is keenly sought after by young creatives who want to make it big in the advertising world and seasoned creative directors who scout for great talent. Portfolio Night 10 took place in 18 cities around the world and over the past ten years the platform has seen a beeline of young copywriters, art directors and designers eager to participate and meet the ad gurus they revere and hold in high esteem.
Colvyn Harris, CEO, JWT South Asia, said, “We are delighted to host Portfolio Night 11 and would like it to be an entry point for unleashing creativity in the new world order. Portfolio Night is an ideal platform that identifies and recognises fresh creative talent and offers them a unique opportunity of getting mentored and nurtured by the best in the advertising fraternity. This is also the perfect opportunity for industry experts to give back to the industry, by guiding aspiring young creatives and helping them carve out a niche for themselves.”
The platform is open to young creative professionals from advertising, digital and design agencies and also senior students of art colleges. JWT India will viral the promotional campaign through broadcast and digital medium. Participants will need to register on their respective city’s page on the Portfolio Night website http://portfolionight.com/11/ and click on the “Buy Tickets” button for a registration. This will take them to that city’s online ticket purchasing system. Tickets are scheduled to go on sale on April 15.
“JWT India has always encouraged budding talent and Portfolio Night 11 is a platform that celebrates creativity.

The JWT India Portfolio Night 11 is expecting over 20 senior creative directors to attend and review the budding freshers. It is a fantastic opportunity for creative directors to spot the ‘next big thing’ in the advertising world and to hire and mentor fresh talent. It is also a chance for industry leaders to give back to the industry by guiding the young talent.
