Portfolio Night 14 will he hosted in Mumbai on 23 May and will be hosted by Whyness and The One Club for Creativity.
The portfolio review program will be held in the Mumbai campus of ecoleintuit.lab.
The event is an evening of advice, networking and recruitment that takes place across the globe on the same date to help the next generation of creative talent entering the industry. The program enables creative directors to meet and mentor those who want to enter the industry.
The program this year also includes 'Portfolio Night All-Stars', where one young creative with the best portfolio from each city will be flown to New York later this year to work as a team on a creative assignment for a major global brand.
Speaking about this collaboration, Ravi Deshpande, founder and chairman, Whyness and ecoleintuit.lab, said, “The creative industry is right in the eye of a storm that’s changing the very definition of creativity, and the onus of spotting potential talent, and nurturing it is upon us. This needs to be done with care, as old rules are now redundant. This is something I believe in deeply, through our unique ecosystem of Whyness and ecoleintuit.lab as well as at a personal level. So the opportunity seemed like a natural extension to take Portfolio Night in Mumbaito its fullest potential.”
Kevin Swanepoel, chief executive officer, The One Club, said, “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. The benefits also run both ways: Portfolio Night has become a crucial tool for agencies in recruiting top young talent, provides agencies with recognition from local industry peers and gives them a place on the global stage as the ad world tunes in to this one-of-a-kind event.”
