Are you looking for experience in answering professional briefs from top brands? Do you need to build your portfolio? Or do you just want to win an iPad and a work placement at a creative agency? Then you’re in luck, because the Ideas Foundation have just launched a website that does all of the above.
“The Ideas Foundation was set up in 2004. Keen to increase the diversity of talent entering the industry, while at the same time identifying and nurturing creative talent that might have been overlooked by the exam-based school system.”
In a bid to increase their reach, the Ideas Foundation has just launched their first online project, ‘I Am Creative’. The vibrant and simple website is loaded with competitive briefs from global brands such as Nokia, Vodafone and Metro, as well as a comprehensive resources library to support and teach their users how to answer a brief.
Once completed, work can be uploaded to the gallery for brands to see and judge (and maybe even make). The winner gets a material prize from the brand (think iPad or phone) and a work placement, and the top 3 highly commended get a place on one of the Ideas Foundation more intensive projects. The aim is overall to get 11-19 year olds to start thinking of the creative industries, while teaching them the skills they need to get into the industry.
