Ad Venture


Ad Venture is the first pan-European competition which gives you the chance to experience what it is like to work in advertising by creating your own agency and working on a pitch for a real client. Your agency will work on the advertising campaign from October to March incorporating everything you learn in class and putting your skills to test.
