About Ra*w

We are young, ambitious & eager to learn

When RA*W was founded in 2012 there were little to no training programs or mentorships for young talent in the advertising industry. Now, five years later, we can proudly say that this has changed tremendously. As we see new initiatives arise every year we can conclude that the industry is increasingly noticing the importance of talent development.

Meanwhile, RA*W has grown into a large community consisting of 3000+ advertising-, design-, pr- and media talents. With constant curiosity, we look at the wonderful and idiotic things that happen in our industry. We frown upon the traditional approach to a business that should be beyond progressive. By now RA*W has turned into the ultimate advertising network of the future. With young talents that are very adaptable and who share their experiences while learning from each other's different disciplines.

The RA*W board members organise the activities in their spare time alongside their (hectic) day jobs. They continue the dialogue between the RA*W Community and the advertising industry.

Ra*w University

RA*W University hosts quality events for student.

The advertising industry may seem like Alice’s Wonderland at times, but just as easily feel like a Triwizard Maze with obstacles around every corner. RA*W University has the purpose of connecting students with the creative industry and vice versa. We open doors, break down walls, collaborate, teach and inspire the next generation. In collaboration with agencies, we program sessions focussed on real insights into the various roles and companies within the creative industry. With this, we show students what it’s like in the real world, outside of University walls. RA*W University is deeply rooted in the Dutch advertising industry and by this work together with Young Talent programs by ADCN and the VEA. Finally, we educate the education system throughout the Netherlands with our Masterclasses.

Ra*w x Cannes

The Cannes Lions Festival

Since 2013, we annually take a group of young advertising talents to the Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity, the Mecca of advertising and the place to get an inspiration- and knowledge injection.

Next to attending the festival’s seminars, we also host private sessions with international heroes. Keith Smith (President International TBWA Worldwide), Ian Wharton (Group Creative Director AKQA), Jacco ter Schegget (President OgilvyOne China), Ana Andjelic (Strategy Director Droga5) and Ivan Perez-Armendariz (Chief Digital Officer, CP+B) are just a few of those industry leaders we got face to face with.

Besides being immersed with inspiration, this group of young advertisers also have the job to share their gained knowledge with those who stay at home. We do this through articles, interviews, video content and social content, which can be found here.

Our trip to the Cannes Lions Festival would not be possible without our sponsors JCDecaux, Stichting Tick and Result and all the agencies who support their talent to go on this instructive trip. The 2017 involved agencies are:

ACHTUNG!
CaratNL
Code D'azur
Colorbleed
CONSPIRACYSINC
DDB & Tribal
Eyeforce
Fitzroy
iProspect
IsobarNL
Kingsday
