We’ve partnered up with Creative Conscience awards and Cause2Create to launch a creative brief around the Refugee crisis. The aim to improve connectivity, within camps, when re-settling in a new location, or how communities receiving refugees can help. This is a brief where the winning ideas can actually get made - so they can help real people.
After walking the Woman’s March in New York on Saturday 21st January, I was inspired to not only think about woman’s rights in general, but about women in advertising.
I’ll begin with a little historical recap as we all know woman’s rights have come a long way, and we should remember this, its good for the soul.
The new year is upon us and with that a flurry of events to inspire your tickers, noggins, brains or whatever you choose to call that thing at the top of your body are here.

As the deadline for entries slammed shut last night we had to sift through over 50 odd entries to determine who would be the worthy winner of our week’s ad space just before Christmas.
Before we reveal the winner, we’ll offer up a some notable entries that had us in stitches and arguments.
The brief is come up with solutions that connect refugees, this could be connecting them in camps, into where they arrive or to their families back home. The brief is open to you solutions whether they're product, advertising, a platform, anything! The only must is that they're feasible to produce, there's no big budget here. Think grassroots, partnerships things you might be able to do yourself with a bit of backing.
Head over to Creative Conscience to read the full brief and get thinking!
