The One Club for Creativity and The 3% Movement Open Global Call for Entries for Next Creative Leaders 2019

Jun. 04, 2019

The One Club for Creativity, the world's foremost non-profit organization recognizing creative excellence in advertising and design, and The 3% Movement, a leading ad industry voice for gender equality and diversity, today opened the global call for entries for their joint Next Creative Leaders 2019 program.

Developed collaboratively by the organizations in 2015, Next Creative Leaders identifies, celebrates and gives a global platform to talented creative women who are making their mark on the world with both game changing work and a unique point of view on creative leadership that is changing the industry for the better.  

Last year’s NCL winners can be viewed here; 2017 winners here.

Entries highlighting a candidate’s creativity, leadership and unique point of view can be submitted to http://nextcreativeleaders.org.  Deadline for submission is August 9, 2019, there is no fee to enter.

This year’s 10 winners will be revealed at The 3% Conference at the Navy Pier in Chicago, November 7-8, 2019, with some of them in attendance to speak.  Winners will be profiled on The One Club for Creativity website and The 3% Movement blog, and the news will be promoted through the two organizations’ social media channels.  Honorees will also be invited to serve as judges for next year’s NCL program and may have opportunities to speak at future events sponsored by the two organizations.

Kevin Swanepoel, CEO, The One Club, said:

“The One Club for Creativity has a long-standing commitment to providing programming that helps solve the industry's diversity problem as opposed to just talking about it. We created our own Inclusion & Diversity Department more than a decade ago, and support programs like Next Creative Leaders that identify, elevate and give voice to those who are making a real difference.  These are the women with will open the door and inspire the next generation of women who follow in their footsteps.”

 

Kat Gordon, founder, The 3% Movement, said:

“We’re so impressed by the talented women who have been named Next Creative Leaders in the past. They’re producing amazing creative work around the world that actually makes a difference.  It’s been exciting to watch this initiative grow into a global showcase for modern creative leadership.”

 

To make Next Creative Leaders as open and accessible as possible, there is no fee to enter the competition.  Entrants are judged on four-to-six pieces of creative work, their background and information about how they — and their work — are pushing the industry forward and making a positive contribution in terms of diversity, mentoring and advocacy.  Winners will be selected by a jury of top creatives and diversity advocates, including past Next Creative Leaders winners.
