The program was developed in partnership with I-Manifest with the aim to provide young creative talent, who may not have attended university or completed AWARD school, a foot in the door.

Eleftheriou and Mani, were selected from a strong field of applicants and wowed the judges with their impressive product prototypes developed as part of the application process. They join the agency in the creative department, on a 3 month fully paid internship.

Says Josh Aitken, Clemenger BBDO Sydney creative lead, charged with mentoring the team: "It's not only great to give bright young minds like Eve and Sharon an opportunity to work in a creative department, but also an eye opener for us to learn how they see the world one meme at a time."

Says Emily Perrett, managing director, Clemenger BBDO, Sydney: "Genuine diversity, in gender and beyond, is something that we really care about. To make meaningful change we have to do more than talk - we have to actually invest in young talent. This partnership with I-Manifest is a brilliant way to do that - and we're thrilled to have our new team in the agency."
