In the world of creative careers, competition is intense. There are tons of talented people looking for work or freelancing with amazing portfolios. How do you stack the deck in your favor when looking for that crucial first job?
Encouraging students to enter award competitions has always been a priority for Miami Ad School. We’ve long known that award-winning work adds credibility to a portfolio. Award competitions are the “peer review” of the industry, and receiving recognition from the pros while still in school is a terrific boost to any creative’s prospects.
The fact that so many Miami Ad School alumni can be found at the highest levels of the industry is due, in large part, to Miami Ad School students being the most-awarded in the world. The competitive advantage is obvious.
