Portfolio Night 10: ‘The Right Moment’ for Young Creative Talent

Creative directors: They’re busy people. And, though you may think you have the most visionary and groundbreaking portfolio in the history of advertising (you don’t), it doesn’t mean creative directors are going to drop everything to look at it. In fact, if they do, it’s probably a pretty bad sign.

However, there is a right time and a right place for you to shove your portfolio in the faces of well-known advertising pros. In fact, “The Right Moment” is the campaign tagline for the 10th annual worldwide “Portfolio Night” presented by the crew at IHaveAnIdea. Starring in a series of promotional spots (created by kirowski Isobar and Umbrella) are DAVID The Agency founder Anselmo Ramos (host of Portfolio Night in Sao Paulo), Ogilvy & Mather China CCO Graham Fink (hosting Portfolio Night in China), Dare London ECD Flo Heiss, Lean Mean Fighting Machine founding partners Dave Bedwood and Sam Ball, and David&Goliath founder/CCO David Angelo, who, if we’re to believe the above video, must love having a glass office that he can write on.

PN10 happens worldwide on Wednesday, May 23, and though it’s natural to be a bit skeptical that this is your best shot for being discovered by internationally regarded agencies, watch this video from LA’s PN10 host, 180, about fulfilling its promise to offer a full-time gig to the best portfolio of the night in 2008. Check out another video in the “The Right Moment” series after the jump and peep more clips here. And oh yes, good luck to the young creatives looking to kickstart their careers.
