Good news: the Creative Press Challenge will be held again this year. The event was initiated last year by Thijs Biersteker and newspaper de Volkskrant to put print ads on a pedestal. With the copy ‘Bad ideas can’t hide in print’ the best creatives in town were invited to make an ad for Free Press Unlimited. The winning ad, by Luuk van de Put and Jurre van de Ven (Alfred), will be sent to Cannes. This year the charity is The Foundation for Refugee Students UAF. According to de Volkskrant a good match, since the topics education and social participation are important to the paper. The charity supports highly educated refugees studying in the Netherlands and subsequently finding an occupation. In October the briefing will be handed out. Since we’re mediapartner again (together with Creatie and Marketing Tribune), we’ll be following the event closely.
