The organizational machine of the eighth edition (2019) of the international advertising prize “OPENARTAWARD – the creatives of tomorrow reward the creatives of today” has started.
Conceived and organized by Openart (an institution that for 20 years has held communication and graphic design courses in Naples), OpenartAward is the only international advertising prize in Italy to have an “institutional” value.
Over the years, in fact, the award has obtained the patronage of the European Commission, Presidency of the Council of Ministers, Ministry of Economic Development, Campania Region, Municipality of Naples, Chamber of Commerce, AssoCom and UniCom, and was awarded the medal of the President of the Republic in 2014.
An absolutely relevant and exclusive aspect of the competition is the jury, made up entirely of students of our graphics and advertising communication courses: a concrete bridge is thus created between the world of academic education and the world of work with the possibility for students of to touch the professional artworks by allowing them to test their communicative creativity on a very particular sample and attentive to the evolution of graphic trends, which is precisely that of the students of graphics and visual communication courses. This was the winning idea that in a few years has made OpenartAward the most qualified prize and with the highest number of participants among the national events dedicated to advertising communication “.
In fact, at the 2018 edition, as many as 131 agencies participated, of which 20 came from abroad, who entered the competition for 1018 jobs representing 675 brands … numbers that actually made OPENARTAWARD the prize for advertising “with the highest number of investments ”in Italy.
The award takes place according to this calendar: companies can register and present their works by July 15, 2019, after which the jury (remember: made up of graphic and communication students) proceeds to the voting whose results will be communicated during the award ceremony that will take place in October 2019 at a prestigious facility in the city of Naples.
