There are a lot of perks to working in the creative industries. One of those is the award shows, where the booze, good times and recognition for creative excellence flow freely.
The next such award show is the Circle Ball. On 13th March, the advertising industry will be squeezing into Camden’s Roundhouse for what promises to be "the best party in the advertising calendar". We can't wait.
The Creative Circle Awards are the oldest awards body in the advertising industry. Last year's winners include Matt Gooden and Ben Walker (the executive creative directors over at Crispin Porter + Bogusky) who earned the president's award, and BBH who were awarded the Gold of Golds for their "Don't cover it up" work.
Besides the awards, the Circle Ball is an incredible opportunity for some serious networking and then there’s the entertainment. In recent years the Circle Ball has been headlined by the likes of The Engine and Paloma Faith.
If you’re very lucky, you might still be able to get a ticket. Students can get in for a mere £10 so it’s well worth a try.
FutureRising will be there on the night, so if you’re lucky enough to be going, make sure you come and say hi. And if you’re unable to go, keep an eye on our Twitter as we’ll be live tweeting all the fun and news from the show.
