This is already the fifth time TAG Vilnius is organising Creative Brief Session. Its purpose is to discover future advertising talents and to give them an opportunity to learn from the best by winning scholarships for Creativity in Advertising course.

As this time participants are challenged by Crisis Pregnancy Center, the aim of the contest is to find a creative way of educating society that unexpected pregnancy is not only the problem of the mother-to-be – she must be supported by all people around her.

Furthermore, this Creative Brief Session will be special as it will happen on the road. Starting in Vilnius where you will be briefed, moving to Nida to present your first concepts, spending night there and heading back to the capital city while the last hours are ticking. Probably, that might be your best summer experience.

Everyone who dreams of a career in advertising is invited to indulge in creative adrenaline for two days and half that much of nights. Participants will be helped, taught and judged by advertising professionals from Lithuania and abroad while trying to find the best idea.

The authors of this idea will be awarded scholarships to join the next course of Creativity in Advertising at The Atomic Garden Vilnius starting 18th of September, 2017.
