Three Omnicom agencies — BBDO India, DDB Mudra Group and TBWA\India — have been announced as co-hosts for The One Club for Creativity’s global in-person Portfolio Night 2022 in Mumbai on June 2.
In addition, the same three agencies will co-host an online pan-India Portfolio Night on June 1 for those outside of Mumbai.
Established in 2003, Portfolio Night has long been recognised as an advertising portfolio review program.
This fast-paced evening of advice, networking and recruitment takes place in cities around the world on the same date to help the next generation of creative talent entering the industry.
Portfolio Night is an important event in advertising because it serves as the gateway for young talent to enter the industry, enabling the best of the present — hundreds of renowned international creative directors — to meet and mentor the leaders of the future in industry hubs around the world.
It has also become a tool for agencies in recruiting top young talent, providing a platform for recognition from local industry peers, and giving agencies a place on the global stage as the ad world tunes in to this event.
The program also includes Portfolio Night All-Stars, where each city host selects one young creative in their market with the best portfolio. These All-Stars will then participate virtually as a team for a week this summer on a creative assignment for a major global brand.
“Portfolio Night is a unique global event that serves as a high-visibility opportunity for agencies and creative directors to give back to the industry by guiding the earliest steps of future copywriters, art directors and technologists,” said Kevin Swanepoel, CEO, The One Club for Creativity. “We are very grateful to BBDO India, DDB Mudra Group and TBWA\India for working together to make this important global event possible in person in Mumbai and virtually for all of India.”
More than two dozen agencies and organisations around the world will host Portfolio Night 2022 on June 2, unless otherwise noted. The confirmed city hosts, so far, include:
The tickets for the same are available at Portfolio Night 2022.
Branding for this year’s program was created by 2014 Portfolio Night All-Star Katlego Phatlane, based in Johannesburg.
The One Club is a non-profit organisation that puts revenue generated from awards entries back into the industry in the form of programs under its four pillars: Education, Inclusion & Diversity, Gender Equality and Professional Development.
