As an initiative, Portfolio Night is possibly one of the few events that draw immense admiration from all quarters of the advertising industry. What it also lends itself is an opportunity for clients to reach out to the budding young talent who look up to them for inspiration.
India’s leading classifieds entity – OLX.in, has announced its association with Portfolio Night where one winner will be offered a chance to work as an intern for three months on a brief set up by the client. The candidate will be chosen from the final set of winners that will be decided by an All Star Jury at the end of the event.
Announcing its partnership with Portfolio Night, Amarjit Singh Batra, CEO, OLX, commented, “A pertinent challenge in an emerging economy such as India is that of giving avenues for young talent to flourish. Portfolio Night is a great opportunity for young creative professionals and aspirants to showcase their work to stalwarts of the advertising industry. OLX is all about actualising real value and Portfolio Night is all about that. As a young brand and a market leader, we want to make a contribution towards encouraging young professionals. That’s why we have decided to give an opportunity to one of the top three contestants of Portfolio Night to intern at OLX.”
