Sinead DennisThe winner of the inaugural IAPI One to Watch Award, Sinead Dennis, says she is thrilled to have won the award: “Taking on the post grad was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made and I’m now doing something I love.”
The award goes to a graduate student of the IAPI/DIT Advertising and Digital Communication Postgraduate programme.
The prize is a place at the International Summer School of Advertising to be held in Barcelona this year. This will include workshops held by Paul Burns (Saatchi & Saatchi), Mickey Denehy, Gurdeep Puri, and Steve Henry (Creative Director of HHCL) who is the youngest person included in Campaign’s Hall of Fame.
The IAPI/DIT Advertising & Digital Communications Postgraduate Programme was created due to a chronic shortage within the advertising industry for skilled staff. In 2010, 14 students enrolled. 93% of the class is now in full time employment in the advertising industry.
