Eight semi–finalists, chosen from #TweetBriefs’ replies, will receive a real agency brief from the Ad Council. Then, on October 1, 2015, they’ll have four minutes to present their solutions before our judges, the client (Ad Council), and a live audience at the New York Times Building.

At the end of the event, the judges will announce the five finalists and award them 30–day, paid Art Director or Copywriter positions at one of the participating companies. The winning campaign will be produced and run on Mashable’s various advertising platforms.
