James Lee Foundation Calls for Submissions to its Inaugural Scholarship Award

James_lee The James Lee Foundation (JLF) is pleased to announce it is accepting submissions for its inaugural scholarship award. 

Established in 2007 to honour the creative legacy and spirit of the late James Lee, the JLF Scholarship is open to emerging non-professional creative talent from across Canada looking to enter the advertising industry. 

“Knowing James inspired people to push the boundaries in creativity, the annual scholarship is intended to recognize and help a promising, aspiring talent do their best work,” says Dean Lee, the former creative partner of James Lee at DDB Canada.  “Ultimately, the award will be given to an up-and-coming ‘creative rebel’ – someone who’s driven to do things differently and has a passion for their craft.”

A scholarship of $5,000 will be awarded on the basis of the portfolio that demonstrates the most original thinking and craftsmanship according to a judging panel made up of a representative from each of the JLF’s five founding member agencies (DDB Canada, Grip Limited, Lowe Roche, Rethink, and TBWA Vancouver), as well as James Lee's family.

Entrants in all fields relating to the advertising industry will be considered for the award including writers, art directors, filmmakers, recording artists, illustrators, photographers and digital artists. 

Portfolio submissions will be accepted online from August 15 through September 15, 2008.
