Golden Drum belongs to the group of few chosen events that carry international importance and recognition because of its outstanding program, which annually hosts eminent experts in the fields of advertising, public relations and media. The festival will be held in Portorož, Slovenia, from 4th – 9th October, and will present a unique opportunity to evolve one’s knowledge and skills. It is a great occasion to expand the circle of professional acquaintances and should not be missed!
Every year the festival brings together a selected crowd of experts, agencies, companies, and students who are given a chance to shine as there are many categories in which participants can compete and present their ideas. Their work is showcased in front of international jury that provides professional feedback and selects the winners.
This year’s Golden Drum presents a few novelties. For the first time in 16 years one day of the festival will be dedicated to public relations. PR plays a crucial role in the field of communications and has significantly evolved in the past years. PR Premiere will be held on Wednesday, October 7th, when selected PR experts will present some of the most successful PR campaigns. As festival offers something for everyone, including young talents, there will be a separate competition for students, who can compete for awards with their innovative video presentations of PR to the public in general.
Another novelty is Best ACT Award, which is a category that demands dazzling ideas that can truly touch people and change the way they think, feel and behave. The jury will consist of marketing and brand managers of major international companies (clients) who will be the ones to select the most superior idea.
Of course, we cannot forget Portorož Piran Advertising Awards for most creative posters on a given theme, where participants will once again compete for generous awards. There is no entry fee for this creative brief. Entry deadline is August 24th 2009.
