The 2014 D&AD New Blood Awards have now opened for entries. The competition provides an accesible bridge between education and the workplace, helping to give young creatives that much needed step on the career ladder.
This year, in addition to 16 briefs set by global brands such as Nokia, ASOS & the BBC, a live brief has been set by Al Gore in collaboration with WPP to tackle the Global Legacy project - changing habits to change the world.
Selected winners will have the opportunity to attend a special climate summit next summer, and if the idea is good enough, it could be put into action.
"For young creatives looking to kick-start their career and create that elusive something to stand out from the crowd, D&AD's New Blood Awards are back with a bang," commented Kati Russell, D&AD Senior Programme Manager.
"We've got a new name, a new look and new brands with exciting but testing challenges."
The deadline for entries is March 19, 2014.
