Not only will you be doing your bit to save the planet. Impress our panel of top industry professionals and you could win yourself a paid work placement at an IPA for Scotland agency.

If your idea is the very best in the eyes of our judges you’ll win the competition Grand Prix and up to £1000 in hard cash.

So, get along to one of the briefings to find out all the details you need and don’t miss our workshops to help you refine your ideas.
