DMA Breakthrough Award


The DMA Breakthrough Award runs in partnership with the DMA Awards and GRT, giving aspiring creatives the opportunity to work on a creative brief set by a well-known brand.

As well as the prestigue of winning an industry recognised award, 1st place will win £1,000, 2nd £500 and 3rd £250.

The DMA Breakthrough Award gives students, interns and non-professionals the opportunity to:

  • Build their portfolios with real client work
  • Experience what it's like to work on a real-life client brief
  • Get feedback and advice from industry experts and creative directors on their work
  • Win a major marketing industry award

If successful at the first stage, teams are invited to pitch their ideas to the client and a panel of industry experts at a central London location in early December. The finalists are then invited to attend the DMA Awards to soak up the finest creative work from the past year, as well as importantly finding out if they took Gold, Silver or Bronze.
