The IDM Student Marketing Competition gives students a taste of what it’s really like to work for an advertising agency.
How does it work?
Students will work on a campaign for a well-known industry brand and the three highest-scoring finalists will be invited to pitch their ideas to the client face to face.
Under the supervision of a lecturer, students work in teams of 3-6 to tackle the client brief.
2017 Sponsor and prizes:
The brief invites solutions that cover all aspects of direct, data and digital marketing and there's a chance that if the client likes what is presented to them, they'll use it in a live campaign.
Each competition entry will be judged by a panel of marketing professionals, as well as the client, and three finalists will be invited to pitch their ideas face to face.
The winner of the competition will be announced at a summer networking reception, taking place in Central London.
This year’s competition is sponsored by The Economist.
The brief invites students to explore ways of increasing the publication’s female readership and the winning team will be rewarded with a cash prize of £1500.
