CR for CR: Graham Fink will crit your book

Our latest offer for Comic Relief is aimed at young ad creative teams, students, people on placement or anyone wanting some advice from one of the industry’s top creative directors

Our latest offer for Comic Relief is aimed at young ad creative teams, students, people on placement or anyone wanting some advice from one of the industry’s top creative directors.

If you win our draw, Graham Fink, executive creative director of M&C Saatchi will crit your book and give you advice on how to improve it. Fink will sit with you for a minimum of 30 minutes, go through your book and give you the benefit of nearly 30 years in the business.

Famously, Fink got his first job at CDP by dressing up as an old man – he’d been told they wanted someone with more experience so he returned in disguise to the agency and got the job.

You don’t have to resort to such shenanigans to get some valuable advice from Fink today. Go to our JustGiving page, donate £5 to Comic Relief, not forgetting to leave your email in your message and, at 10am on Monday 21 March we will pick a winner at random.

We are doing this as a draw because it is aimed at placement teams, students etc and we did not want those most in need of advice to miss out because they could not afford the top bid.

This offer is for a 30 minute crit. CR will not pay any travel expenses. The auction winner will be responsible for setting up the meeting.

Remember, let us know what you’re up to for Red Nose Day as we want to feature as many fundraising efforts by our readers as we can this week.

And if you’re interested in bidding on any of the items we’re auctioning, here’s a reminder of what we’ve got on offer so far:
