MediaCorp is the Singapore representative of the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. They would like to invite students from the National University of Singapore to send in their applications for a chance to participate in the Roger Hatchuel Academy programme. Attendance for the course is free but the selected student will have to bear the costs of the return air-tickets and hotel accommodation.
The Roger Hatchuel Academy offers students a chance to experience Cannes for themselves, providing a complimentary week-long course to a select group of advertising students from around the world. Under the guidance of the Academy’s Dean, Richard Boyko, Director and Professor of VCU Brandcenter, and accompanied throughout the week by the Academy’s tutor, Clive Challis, Head of the Advertising Course at Central Saint Martins in London, these students will follow an intensive schedule of activities, which include learning about industry trends; attending daily training sessions, discussions, tutorials, and Festival activities; and the exclusive opportunity to hear from the Academy’s industry-savvy guest speakers.
Only one student from each country will be selected for a place in the Roger Hatchuel Academy.
Students who are keen to attend the Roger Hatchuel Academy should submit their CV and a short writeup on why they should be selected for the programme via email at firstname.lastname@example.org by 29 April 2011. The selected student will be informed by 16 May 2011.
Students would need to commit from 19 to 25 June 2011 for the course.
