The Sidney Crosby’s of advertising were out in full force Tuesday night as Halifax hosted its first ever Portfolio Night in Canada.

Halifax’s creative community came together to support young creatives and to consider how the local industry is nurturing homegrown talent. The result: a social night that proved Atlantic Canada a promising spot for up-and-coming creative talent.

“The success of our event was really all about getting off the ground in our market,” said Brian Hickling, CCL’s creative director and host of the night.

The event welcomed five keen creative minds who bravely opened their portfolios to the gauging eyes of Hickling and Maura MacNeill of CCL, Shawn King and Anthony Taaffe of the Extreme Group, and Eric Wood of Trampoline.

King commemorated those participating for bravely accepting a night of scrutiny. “We need young, energetic and motivated individuals who can bring new ideas and fresh perspective that will fuel the creative process in our region. Those who brought their portfolios were very brave to come tonight.”

A good show of industry representatives provided the five participants with a chance to network and socialize with some of Atlantic Canada’s leading creative directors, art directors and copywriters.

Hickling said he already looks forward to supporting the event next year. “We’ll learn from this year’s event and it’ll give us something to build on.”

The goal for next year is to double the number of people that participated in the portfolio review process, said Hickling.

Portfolio Night in Canada was presented by CCL GROUP and the Extreme Group, and was supported by Cenex Inc., Filet Post Production, First Light, Alexander Keith’s and Russell House Marketing.
