Five teams trained and selected during #TheAlternativeSchool’s #TalentBet2022 program will represent Romania at the next Eurobest edition, taking place this December, online.

Over the summer, 40 strategists, designers, art directors, copywriters, brand managers, social media & PR people, either employed by agencies, clients or freelancers, participated in the 3rd #TalentBet career accelerator endorsed by George, The First Intelligent Banking, Kronenbourg Blanc 1664, Caii de la Letea, Mindspace and Rogalski Damaschin, the agency that offered six scholarships to the best applicants in the program.

16 Romanian and foreign speakers guided the creatives via presentations about the future of the industry, in all its aspects: the hot new disciplines, the trends setting the tone for the future; Outstanding case studies were analyzed, and answers about how to build a festival winning work were delivered by the best in class, live sessions on editing portfolios took place live and online, while all the face to face meetings took place in the chic context of Mindspace Victoriei. Of course, as the school tradition continues, the participants’ plate was delighted with bespoke finger food, by DulceBun.
