Delhi to host Portfolio Night for the first time on May 22

How about speed dating the best of creative minds? How about getting into the wonderful world of advertising in just one night? We are not kidding. As the new creative hub, Delhi brings an exciting opportunity to meet aspiring young advertising copywriters, art directors, designers and several renowned advertising creative directors in a fast-paced evening of advice, networking and recruitment through the Portfolio Night.

Being hosted in Delhi for the very first time by Leo Burnett, it is an evening where young, enthusiastic copywriters and art directors get to meet and share their portfolios with some of the most senior and experienced creative people from Indian advertising. Since its debut in 2000, Mumbai has been one of most popular Portfolio Night cities. Participants would travel from all parts of India to attend it.

In the 11 years since its inception, Portfolio Night has grown to a global event, reaching creative hubs in every continent in an evening where the best of the present meets the best of the generation next. It is a marriage between the thousands of young creatives, hundreds of creative directors and dozens of host agencies in cities around the world.

KV Sridhar, Chief Creative Officer, Leo Burnett India and Subcontinent said, “Delhi’s client list is very enviable, compared to a lot of other cities, considering work on some of the largest and most visible brands is done from here. And I also believe that it is a veritable goldmine of talent with so many young creative people looking to make a name for themselves here. With the Portfolio Night in Delhi, we want to give these young creative people a chance to interact with several senior creative people and industry legends, and get direct feedback on their portfolios. An opportunity like this is very rare for these youngsters. Who knows, we might just end up finding the future stars of Indian advertising at Portfolio Night.”
