The Advertising Council of India (ACI) will once again sponsor young professionals for the ‘Fast Track’ professional development programme curated by the Asian Federation of Advertising Associations (AFAA) in Kuala Lampur.
This year’s programme will be hosted from 20 to 22 September.
Six professionals chosen through a two-stage selection process will be sent on the all-expenses-paid trip.
Those interested are invited to write 100 words on the topic: “How I would improve certain aspects of our industry that I believe need improving”.
This needs to be sent with a brief profile and passport number to firstname.lastname@example.org, by 16 August 2016.
Applicants must be under 35 years with at least five years of experience in marketing, advertising or media.
Shortlisted candidates will be interviewed in Mumbai in the second stage of selection.
Srinivasan K Swamy, vice chairman, AFAA, on behalf of the ACI, said “We see this effort as our way of helping develop talent and ultimately enriching our industry.”
This is the fourth time the ACI is undertaking this initiative. ACI’s members are Indian Society of Advertisers (ISA), Advertising Agencies Association of India (AAAI), Indian Broadcasters Foundation (IBF), International Advertising Association (IAA) and The Advertising Club.
