Hosted by D&AD and WPP, the 2021 Academy is designed to support 50 awarded creatives on their journey into industry, developing the key skills and resilience it takes to get your foot in the door, and preparing them for a successful and exciting career.

This year’s Academy with WPP is open for applications from our New Blood Award Pencil and Portfolio Pick winners who haven’t yet secured employment*. Together, we will build a community of 50 future leaders who will represent the future of the creative industry as it should be: brave, resilient, purpose driven and diverse. 

*Applications to the 2021 Academy are open to all New Blood Award Pencil and Portfolio Pick winners from 2021 who are not currently in a full time role or a placement longer than 3 months within the creative industry/your field of choice. 

Eligible applicants will be contacted via email. If you haven’t heard from us, but believe you should have been invited to apply for the Academy, email newblood@dandad.org
