“I was truly moved by these students. They are our future and the Young Globals/Global Awards is helping us to bring their great talents to the forefront,” said Scott Watson, chief creative officer of Ogilvy CommonHealth Worldwide. 11,079.5 miles might separate them, and they each have their own culture, but one thing strongly resides within each one of them…creativity.”

“It is my privilege to be part of Globals Health ambition to challenge, inspire, support and encourage the young talent from around the world to not only enter this award,” added Mr. Perrott, “but to become part of the most innovative and creatively dynamic business in communications.”

2015’s student winner’s entries were inspired by a creative brief that posed the challenge, “How do we make HEALTH second nature in our lives? Students were interviewed about their campaign by Young Globals sponsoring agencies’ international award-winning healthcare advertising chief creative officers Jeremy Perrott, global chief creative officer, McCann Health and Scott Watson, chief creative officer of Ogilvy CommonHealth Worldwide.

“Each group of students had their own way of interpreting the brief and in turn created exceptionally smart and creative ideas. Jeremy and I feel that our future in healthcare and advertising in general looks very promising. We should celebrate where this new wave of talent is headed and look to hire them as quickly as possible,” said Mr. Watson.

“From the process of receiving entries from around the world and considering their solutions, we arrived at our final winners, not only knowing the creative level was high, but realizing as an industry we have some exceptional talent who will produce amazing things for others to rise up to,” said Mr. Perrott. “Congratulations to the winners. Well done to all.”

The annual Young Globals competition accepts entries from students at the university level, including portfolio centers, who are studying advertising, marketing, art, design, creative writing or similar areas of creative focus.
