The Big Book Crit runs in partnership with the Graeme Robertson Trust, the IDM and the DMA to help aspiring creatives break into industry.

How does it work?
The event is split into three sections. First up, a short topical talk to get you up to speed on what's hot in industry right now. You'll then be split up and the critiquing will begin - you'll have roughly 10 minutes per creative director to talk through your ideas (we recommend you choose your top 3). The evening will round off with networking drinks giving you time to ask those questions you didn't get chance to.

The event is open to students at any stage of their course (you can be studying anything from graphics to illustration to copywriting), recent grads or anyone starting out in their career looking for advice – you just need a portfolio of work that you’re comfortable showing off.
Individuals and teams are both welcome, and if you’re working on the DMA Breakthrough Award, this is the perfect opportunity to show off your work and get feedback on your ideas.
See you there!
