Lima is the city for new advertising talent!

Lima is the capital of Peru. It is located on the central coast of the country on the Pacific Ocean. It has a temperate climate, without extreme temperatures, and it rarely rains. Lima is modern, cozy, versatile and full of friendly people that enjoy the city because of its spectacular beaches perfect for surfing, glider rides to the edge of cliffs and inexhaustible popular culture that fuses the best of all regions in Peru. The best part of Lima? Its gastronomy is known worldwide and a source of pride for all Peruvians.

Peru is growing rapidly and that growth can be seen in the advertising industry and its overall creativity. The city has won more than 40 advertising awards during the last five years including a Grand Prix at Cannes Lions and many other creative festivals.
