POP (Power of Press) is gearing up for our most important event of the year. On Thursday, August 15th we’ll hold a day-long press planning competition during which agency teams will have the opportunity to compete against each other to be crowned POP Planning Team of the Year*.
We’ve roped some of the industry’s leading lights into proceedings. Paul Farrell of Initiative and John Gildea of Owens DDB have agreed to share their wealth of experience and knowledge and to judge the strategies presented by teams at the end of the day. A well-known client will complete the judging panel and we’ll have details about who will take on this role before the big day.
The format for August 15th includes short presentations by the industry leaders, speed networking with newspaper publishers, preparation time and presentations by each team to the judges. We’ll finish the day with a barbecue and a few casual drinks (hopefully outside in glorious sunshine).
The winning team will go home with something shiny for the trophy cabinet and tickets to Electric Picnic for each team member.
We’re recruiting teams of five young media planners extraordinaire (or individuals who we’ll include on one of our multi-agency teams). Each of the team members should have maximum three years experience in a planning/buying/media strategy role.
The deadline to register is July 26th but we’ll accept names from now on.
