Spin a boring clip into gold, win employment

Big ad gig

The Big Ad Gig is back for its second year, granting 30-day entry-level jobs to the gaggle of unemployed creatives shuffling about on the edges of the industry. And all you have to do to get one of these gigs is submit a video. But instead of an open call to upload anything you like, this time you’ll have to complete a video based on one of the judges' "abstract nuggets." Apparently, an abstract nugget is a small bit of a story. You’ll have to transform your nugget into a compelling brand story for…something. Once again, eight finalists get to come to Advertising Week and work on an Ad Council brief, but this time there will be five winners instead of four. Plus, they're guaranteed the contents and a pink mystery box. Crispin Porter + Bogusky, Ogilvy in New York, Proximity Atmosphere and TBWA\Chiat\Day are partnering on the project. May the compellingest nugget win.
