About the GWA Junior Agency Award

Since 2002, for one semester each, marketing and design students from various universities have been working on communication concepts together with industry partners and in cooperation with advertising agencies. The advertising agencies serve as coaches for the teams. Participating students go through all phases of the conception process. From research to strategic planning, from brainstorming of creative implementation to a 25-minute pitch on the day of the Junior Agency Award. The jury, consisting of agency managers, marketing experts and journalists, evaluates the presentations and awards the coveted gold, silver and bronze prizes, as well as, the audience prize and the prize for the best "making of" video.
