DMA Talent is a division of the DMA and IDM responsible for generating a pipeline of talented young people for the data and marketing industry.

DMA Talent are dedicated to championing young people as the future of our industry and we offer a range of initiatives to attract a new generation of fresh thinkers into the industry and connect them with employment opportunities.

The Big Book Crit runs in partnership with the Graeme Robertson Trust, the IDM & DMA to help aspiring creatives looking to break into the creative marketing sector. Young creatives are given the rare opportunity to have their work critiqued by creative directors and build those all important connections.

What will I be doing?

Turn up ready to show your best work. You’ll meet a stellar selection of well-established professional creatives, including Creative Directors at the top of their game, from a variety of agencies who are primed to critique your work, giving invaluable feedback as well as advice on getting a job in the creative industry.

You’ll sit at the same critiquing station throughout, getting 15 minutes to speak to each creative as they move around each station at the sound of a bell.

Book your place now to:

  • Receive invaluable advice from some of the country’s leading creatives
  • Be inspired by your peer’s creative work
  • Network with industry professionals who could help land you that dream job
