Creative Shootout

19th January 2017, London, UK

Following the inaugural Creative Shootout in January, the 2017 awards are now open to agency or in house teams from every marketing discipline.
The Creative Shootout is a high octane creative competition done in a day - with the winning team’s ideas going to an initiative run by the UK’s two largest mental health charities, Mind and Rethink Mental Illness.
Following a first year focused on PR, which saw agency Mischief crowned overall winner, agency or in house teams can now enter from any marketing discipline.  
Entry is done by sending in and giving the judges just ‘60 seconds’ on why the agency or in house team believes it has the creative clout for Mind and Rethink Mental Illness.  The format can be any content – visual, video, showreel, app, audio, written, just a simple email or even a cake – but it must be viewed, read (or digested) in 60 seconds by the judges.
Entry is open at to close Friday 11th November 2016.
From there, entries are shortlisted to eight finalist teams, who go on to compete in a live head-to-head final on 19th January 2017, in London.  Finalists receive a real brief in the morning from Mind and Rethink Mental Illness, then pitch it back to judges and a live audience of several hundred in the afternoon - and in the evening a 1st, 2nd and 3rd will be crowned at an after party.
