Earn a Creative Internship with D&AD’s New Blood Shift NYC!

We all have that shoot-for-the-stars dream – the one that fills our minds each day and keeps us awake at night, as we continue to hope for our big break. In the competitive creative industry, many young and hopeful artists are untapped, unseen, and unfulfilled. Young dreamers sometimes need that helping hand to make their dreams come true.

D&AD, a globally renowned advertising and design awards, is launching New Blood Shift NYC to find NYC’s unconventional and unseen young talent with the aim of bringing youth who are lacking the opportunity, but have the talent to make it in the creative industry.

Applications are open until May 18th, 5pm EST for aspiring young creatives to earn three months of live briefs, training, peer-to-peer learning, and industry mentoring to carve out a creative career path in design and advertising. All they have to do to apply is to submit their awesome creative work!

We would love your help in helping talented and creative youth achieve their dreams by sharing some of these details:
