TWO BICster Teams Make ONE Show Client Pitch

5/05/2017 Unknown 0 Comments

A BIG BIC Congrats to the TWO BIC teams that have been selected for The ONE Show's 2017 Social Brief Client Pitch. Just ten teams from around the globe were selected to pitch their work directly to a panel of judges at 12:30PM on Tuesday, May 9th at West Edge (88 10th Avenue). That means that 2 out of 10 teams are from BIC! The winners will receive a $2,000 prize and will be announced at the awards ceremony later that night.

This year's Client Pitch teams will include BICsters (and two undergrads!):

Henrik Bakke-Hareise, Carmen Quang, and Francesco  Rizzo will pitch "Donuts for Peace" which partners Dunkin Donuts and the Council on American-Islamic Relations to bring common values to American consumers in a truly delicious way. Alex Elkonina, Tannya Luna, Michael Mangal, and Nilda Valdez will pitch "Mission Monkey Bars" which partners Fischer Price and the US Army to provide playgrounds to refugee children as a fundamental right to play.

We are especially grateful to BIC instructor Jason Stefanik for guiding BICsters to great heights along with support from the entire BIC family...

ABOUT: The Client Pitch Competition offers students a chance to win an award by pitching their Young Ones Competition entries to a group of top creatives and client representatives. While the Young Ones Competition is judged solely by creative excellence and idea, the Client Pitch Competition is judged by the participants' ability to create and articulate a focused strategy and the persuasiveness of the marketing pitch.

The One Club will select the best submissions, and the finalist teams will give a 10-minute live presentation to a panel of judges in May in New York City. The winning team will then be announced and awarded with $2,000 at the One Show Young Ones Awards Ceremony.
