Brisbane Graduates Sell Themselves

Creatively of course.

Seeing as how my husband seems hell bent on moving to Australia one day, I do follow the Ad world over there a bit. A bit behind, but I still try and follow.

News Limited AWARD School Queensland celebrated their Graduation last Friday night on the Rooftop Terrace of Cutting Edge (AWARD Silver Partners). The theme ‘fight night’ was continued after AWARD and BAd members received an online game where two creative directors fight it out.

The highlight of the evening was an ambient stunt created by the students to support Mission Australia. Pillows and sleeping bags littered the entrance to the event, with posters depicting a down and out student in need of work.
Students have also put themselves on EBay so creative directors can bid for their services for a day – with all proceeds to go to Mission Australia. You can bid by searching brisbaneaward07 on
