New Blood Academy
The D&AD New Blood Academy is an intensive online training programme fuelling the trajectory of hot new talent into the creative industry, in the space of just two weeks.
Hosted by D&AD and WPP, the 2022 Academy helped 50 awarded creatives hit the ground running with a ready-made network of contacts, collaborators, mentors and more. Through immersive training and unrivalled support, attendees met the evolving zeitgeist of the industry, uncovering roles they never knew existed and opening up the possibilities of their own paths. New Blood Academy is an opportunity like no other – not only getting feet in doors, but skills up to speed and offers on tables.
This year’s Academy with WPP is now closed for applications from New Blood Award Pencil and Portfolio Pick winners.
Eligible applicants were contacted via email. Not heard but think you should have? Get in touch over email: email@example.com
