6 - 17 July 2015
The New Blood Academy is a two-week creative bootcamp that catapults young creatives into industry.
Held in the heart of East London, attendees are mentored by the best of WPP’s agencies and pushed to their creative limits through a non-stop programme of talks, workshops, hacks, and live client challenges. Collaborating across disciplines, skillsets, and nationalities, each attendee will leave with a greater sense of their creative practice, career goals, and the opportunity to gain paid internships within the WPP global network.
2015 speakers included: Mark Bonner (GBH/ D&AD President), Andy Sandoz (Work Club), Dan Germain (Innocent), Ian Wharton (AKQA), Laura Jordan-Bambach (Mr. President), Steve Henry (DECODED), Graphic Thought Facility, LOBO, and many more.
The New Blood Academy is open to anyone who receives a Pencil at the New Blood Awards and selected CCSP Award winners. There are also wildcard places available for exhibitors who impress the judges at the New Blood Festival.
