Thank you to all the longlisted candidates who sent in videos.

What happens next

Before the end of April you will be invited, by your City training provider, to attend an assessment day in May to fit with your school/college timetable.

You will meet with other Creative Pioneers candidates and be briefed on the job roles and agencies and set some exercises to test your skills.

If you meet the criteria you will be selected for the shortlist and be sent for interview.

If you do not meet the criteria don't give up. You will have learnt a lot more about this great industry, and improved your chances for next time.

Good luck!
