To make Next Creative Leaders as open and accessible as possible, there is no fee. Entrants are judged on four-to-six pieces of creative work, their background and information about how they — and their work — are pushing the industry forward and making a positive contribution in terms of diversity, mentoring and advocacy. Winners will be selected by a jury of top creatives and diversity advocates, including past Next Creative Leaders winners.
The 3% Movement was started as a passion project to spotlight a huge business opportunity in advertising -- the lack of female creative leadership and its impact on connecting with an overwhelmingly female marketplace. The 3% Movement has grown exponentially since its 2012 launch and has hosted events in 22 cities globally. Now the 3% team offers consulting services with agencies and brands to support more diverse leadership and a 3% Certified programme that awards those demonstrating true leadership around gender diversity.
