The Roger Hatchuel Academy

The Roger Hatchuel Academy is a 6-day programme that takes place during the Cannes Lions festival designed to help students interested in pursuing a career in the advertising industry.

The programme is an incredible opportunity for the selected students, 40 in total, to launch their careers.

IAPI are delighted to announce, in association with TU Dublin (ex DIT),that school of marketing student Ciara Gilmartin, who hails from Sligo, has been selected to represent Ireland in the Roger Hatchuel Academy this summer.

This year, the students will be challenged to make the Roger Hatchuel Academy the most diverse place at Cannes Lions and to look beyond just their area of study into their creative impact on the world.

Ciara won the Cannes bursary through a competition set by IAPI and TU Dublin and we are thrilled to be able to help foster such an up and coming talent.

An incredible selection panel of nine experts drawn from the creative communications and marketing worlds joined forces to select the students who will take part in the annual training course at Cannes Lions.
