Business Insider is asking everyone in AdLand to send us nominations for the most creative women in the industry.Even though we are well out of the Mad Men era, women still make up only three per cent of creative directors at advertising agencies. So BI wanted to start the new year off right by featuring the creative women who are making a mark in the field.
This includes everyone from copywriters to art directors to the women who compose the jingles.
Email your nominations to [email protected] by Wednesday, January 9. Here’s what we’re looking for:
- Ideally, we would like the name of TWO creative women from your shop (including a head shot, explanation of why you think she deserves it, and links to their work, if you have those available).
- To prevent self-serving nominations and puffery, we’re also asking you to name AT LEAST ONE woman from a competing shop that you think does incredible work and would hire if given half the chance. (This is confidential).
If you want some inspiration for what we’re looking for, check out our list of the 30 most creative people in advertising under 30.
