Was this the best party in advertising? The Creative Circle Awards was certainly a great night and you definitely should have been there.

On the 13th March, folk from across the advertising industry poured into Camden's Roundhouse for this years Creative Circle Awards. There was champagne, wine, beer and I think some awards were given out too. Plus live music from the great Eliza Doolittle.

As I sat on a table with some D&AD members, an arm’s reach from Dave Trott on the table behind and just metres from representatives from just about every agency I could think off, I couldn’t help but feel both shocked and saddened that this was my first time at the Creative Circle Awards.

Students get into this amazing networking event for just £10 and yet I never heard of it when I was a student. Watching awards being handed out isn’t always the most exciting thing in the world but this is the kind of event that students absolutely must go to. Hours of partying and networking with the greatest people in advertising is fun, interesting and will no doubt help you land a job in the future. Props to New Bucks Ad School who were there in force but I didn’t meet a single student from another university/course which is a shame.
