It’s back – the best free learning event in the comms calendar – the UnAwards Winners Masterclass. They will be the hottest ticket around and so here’s how you can try to grab one…
by Darren Caveney
The UnAwards 2019 generated a staggering 350 entries and the quality of the work submitted was higher than ever.
What did it take to win?
Attending the Masterclass each year is a unique opportunity to hear, first hand, the experiences, tips and lessons which lie behind the winners’ work.
There will be two free ticket releases taking place at noon on:
Thursday 5 March
Thursday 12 March
Demand for these tickets will be high – last year they were snapped up in 60 seconds so please set your alarms and be quick off the mark.
You can get your tickets HERE.
