Draftfcb Hosting Two Events at Cannt Festival
June 13, 2013
Draftfcb UK will be hosting two events for Camp Cannt at the third annual Cannt Festival, a week of events centred on the creative and advertising community. The festival runs from 17th-21st June and was created for the capital’s adlanders who will not be at Cannes Lions, but have been involved in creating great work through the year.
For the first event Anna Gordon and Kate Lloyd, a creative team at Draftfcb, will co-hosting a sold-out "Speed Critique" on Monday 17th June from 6.30pm at LBi’s Brick Lane offices: young hopefuls will have only three minutes to pitch a concept to eight creative directors for the chance of a full portfolio crit "date."
The second event is "Life Drawing for Copywriters." Armed with only an easel and a charcoal pencil, writers will review ten rounds of life poses lasting between one and five minutes and will be challenged to write a unique piece for each nude pose. Whether a haiku, limerick, sonnet, tweet, monologue, or short story, the best copy will be rewarded and transformed into a small publication. Creatives Colin Mitchell, Dan Shone and Sean Cullen, as well as one of the Cannt Festival’s founding organisers and Draftfcb’s Digital Creative Director Steven Bennett-Day, will run the event at Juno on Shoreditch High St on Tuesday 18th June from 7pm.
Bennett-Day commented, "Cannt is a great way to celebrate with the host of creatives in London who helped realise some amazing work produced this year. Draftfcb wanted to show its support for the young creatives who will be decorating La Croisette in years to come and also to have some fun by pushing writers out of their comfort zone."
