Ciclope Festival 2014

While there are a multitude of festivals devoted to the business and ideas sides of advertising, its craft can fall a little by the wayside.

While there are a multitude of festivals devoted to the business and ideas sides of advertising, its craft can fall a little by the wayside. Not at Ciclope Festival, however, which is entirely devoted to the celebration of ad craft. The latest edition of the festival takes place on November 6-7 in Berlin.

Ciclope Festival has been running since 2010 and for its first three years took place in Buenos Aires, before moving to Berlin in 2013. This year’s event is the second to be held in the German capital, and will consist of a conference and networking events, as well as an awards ceremony, celebrating the best work in advertising craft this year.

Among those lined up to speak at this year’s festival are Andreas Nilsson, the director behind the Volvo Trucks Epic Split commercial; Mike McGee, creative director at Framestore; and Guido Heffels, co-founder of Heimat ad agency. There will also be top creatives from agencies including Wieden + Kennedy, Droga5, Saatchi & Saatchi, 72andSunny, and many more taking part in the networking events.
