To cover some of the basic rules: You can enter a group project, it can be a fictitious campaign or a real one, you’re not limited to the number of categories/pieces you can enter, and as long as you’re a student right now you qualify. There is a PDF attached of all of the rules and different categories. You will be competing against other college student’s in the area, so this is an opportunity to show UTK’s superiority.
The first 40 entries will be free courtesy of RIVR Digital — limited to one free entry per user. You can submit your entry at http://www.theaddystrikesbackcom and use the promo code: theaddystrikesback to get one of the free entries.
4-5 student volunteers are needed to help set up the show, set up the creative gallery, and be at the event. You will get the opportunity to meet all of the big names of the advertising world in Knoxville — from agency account managers, planners, creatives, and even the owners.
