Tuesday, July 7, 2015 — The 12 graduates were chosen out of more than 150 candidates, a new record! They will run their own advertising agency, The Farm, during a period of three weeks in August. The selection for this seventh edition of The Farm was done in cooperation with clients of BBDO. Marketeers from Mercedes, Flair, Vier, Pearle Opticiens and JCDecaux all took out an entire day to help a team of BBDO in the intensive search for knowledge, skills and motivation. Because of the active role the clients played, the aspiring Farmers could immediately test their talent to cope with immediate feedback from advertisers. Starting August 2nd, the 12 creatives, strategists and accounts will give it their best shot at real campaigns. At stake: a contract at BBDO. Follow them on The Farm Facebook page.
The 12 Farmers are Lina Akbarzadeh, Theo Barron, Evelien Dockx, Camille Liebaert, Karel Lovenich, Jolien Noppen, Caro Soons, Daan Van Den Bergh, Alisia Van Genechten, Pieter Van der Auwermeulen, Thomas Vandenbroucke & Tom Bungeneers.
