Since ad agencies are losing more and more people to more attractive disciplines like tech companies such as Facebook, Google, Twitter and Instagram, as well as the television, production and entertainment fields, Philippine-based young creatives were asked to come up with a digital or social campaign to talk people who left or are thinking of leaving the industry both local and global into coming back or staying in advertising.
The winners will be announced on May 27 and will be getting a free economy fare and hotel accommodations to participate in the LIA Creative LIAsons program.
