Creative Circle Relaunches Membership Scheme

Creative Circle, 8 months ago

The UK’s oldest advertising awards body continues to unite Britain’s creative community

Creative Circle Relaunches Membership Scheme


Creative Circle, the oldest advertising awards body in the UK, has announced some major changes set to improve its established membership scheme. 

The awards body is placing a greater emphasis on its philosophy - to celebrate, nurture and champion creativity – by increasing its focus on students with the introduction Student Welcome Pack.

Extending its aim to unite Britain’s creative community, the Creative Circle continues to benefit new and existing company members by offering discounted entries and tickets to the awards show.

Jeremy Green, CEO of The Creative Circle, comments: “The membership scheme has been designed so that every member of the Circle becomes a part of a unified, British creative community. From our industry’s great leaders through to the new breed of aspiring creatives, those at the top will be united with those as the bottom.”

Available to first year advertising students studying creative advertising, the Student Welcome Pack aims to aid their creative education by welcoming them to the Creative Circle community. It includes a Moleskine notebook featuring an inspirational message from Vicki Maguire, a branded pencil, an Adpad plus an invitation to apply for complimentary membership. 

Members are treated as owners of the Creative Circle and will be allowed to vote to elect two ‘Inner Circle’ councillors; an Awarded Member, elected by all the non-students, and a Student, elected by fellow students.

The entirely new tier of Awarded Membership has been introduced and will be available to any person that has been credited against any Bronze, Silver or Gold Creative Circle award win.

Those who subscribe to company memberships can re-coup their outlay with discounts on their award entries and tickets to the main event at the Roundhouse, which celebrates the best of British creativity. Company members will also receive a Creative Circle roundel that they can proudly display in their office window. 

At the core of the revamp will be regular members-only social gatherings uniting the UK’s creative community in a social setting, whilst all Members will continue to receive a free copy of Circle magazine alongside a copy of each of the quarterlies.
