Talented creative women who are stepping into leadership roles: Copywriters, Art Directors, ACDs and newly-minted CDs who are doing game-changing work and helping change our industry for the better.
No boys allowed. Our industry has plenty of talented male leaders. But this award is for the women actively pushing their 29% representation higher.
No executives. Women creatives with the Big E before their CD titles have already proven themselves as leaders. They probably have shining reports to send us, though!
No double dipping. Previous winners are asked to leave this round - and the glory - to a new generation of kick ass women.
No school work. Next Creative Leaders are on the seasoned side. Know a talented woman who still has spec work in her book? We welcome her application... in a few years.
Creativity. Four-six pieces of badass creative work that you helped shape or lead. Work you’re proud of. Work that’s changing the game and maybe the world.
Leadership. From mentoring and advocacy to pro-bono or diversity work, include a bio that calls out what you are doing to leave a positive mark on our industry.
POV. Did you push for diverse casting? Raise money to produce a pro bono spot? Add notes to highlight ways your unique perspective shaped the work you’re submitting.
We're all about women putting themselves forward, so we've designed this award to make that possible. You can easily apply for Next Creative Leaders without:
Nothing. We believe so fiercely in the importance of gender diversity, that we're working hard to break down any and all barriers to talented women seeing the spotlight. And that means waiving the application fee for this competition.
Winners will be featured in The 3% Conference blog, The One Club for Creativity website, and in the words of Cindy Gallop, "tweeted the sh*t out of" from both of our Twitter handles. You'll also be invited to be a part of the 2019 Next Creative Leaders Jury, and may be invited to speak at the 2019 3% Conference in Chicago this November
