Special Competition Course

One of the most acclaimed advertising, interactive and design student competitions is the annual One Show Young Ones Competition, a tradition dating back to 1986. This course focuses on creating work to enter for the competition.

Students will be working on briefs provided by the One Club and this year's clients: BMW and TOMS: PartnersGlobal and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Interactive, social media, and digital strategy will be a part of this class - where you will work on campaigns or design work for your portfolio.

The Pencil winners are awarded at the annual One Show Young Ones Education Festival awards ceremony and finalists are published in the One Show Annual as well as online in the Young Ones Awards Archive. 

The One Club exists to champion and promote excellence in advertising and design in all its forms. It is the world's foremost non-profit organization devoted to elevating creative work in the industry. It seeks to celebrate the legacy of creative advertising and to use that legacy to inspire future generations. The One Club is the 'keeper of the flame' for advertising creatives.
