This year's event promises to be an exciting and informative evening of advice, networking, and recruitment. The one with the best portfolio will compete with winners from other cities on a virtual global brief as part of Portfolio Night All-Stars.
Speaking about being on the jury, BBDO India chairman and CCO Josy Paul commented, “There’s a major generational shift and it is impacting the nature of the idea and media. Portfolio Night is a great opportunity for understanding this changing moment. It’s more than just a sharing of portfolios. It is a platform for cross-generational pollination. For liberating the new sound of creativity. I genuinely hope that we meet youngsters who are not mimicking the past but expressing the way they feel. Looking forward to the portfolios of the future.”
DDB Mudra Group CCO Rahul Mathew commented, “The portfolio is more than just a compilation of work. Every time one shares their portfolio, a learning session starts and the creator learns what works, and what doesn’t. They learn where they need to pivot in their thinking and how much they need to lift their standards. And as the ones viewing the portfolio, we learn a lot about the creator, how their minds work, and what is the potential they hold. But more importantly, we learn refreshing new ways to look at problems. So, I really look forward to being both a mentor and a student at this edition of Portfolio Night.”
“Portfolio Night is an amazing opportunity to meet the youngest, brightest, and most talented youngest generation in Indian advertising. It’s an opportunity to spot exceptional talent and shine a light on these gifted creatives. As an idea, it unclogs an important channel. The opportunity for the youngest, most energized minds to interact with the most experienced and successful leaders in the industry. It’s an opportunity that both parties can benefit from tremendously,” shared TBWAI\India CCEO Russell Barrett.
