What to expect

The two and a half hour webinar workshop gives participants a concise overview of the AWARD School application process and covers 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 covers the topic “What makes a great ad?” Hear from an industry expert.

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. 

Who’s it for?

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

NOTE: ACA makes no guarantees that you will be accepted into AWARD School after doing this Workshop. The Workshop is designed to increase your chances of success.
