Press release by the Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg
Ludwigsburg, 17 August 2018

15th Porsche International Student Advertising Film Award:

The submission deadline for the PORSCHE AWARD 2018 passed recently: an impressive total of 104 films were submitted, taking the number into the three figures for the first time. The submissions are spread between the Classical Category/Other Formats and the Mobility Category, and between 13 countries over four continents: Europe (Germany, UK, France, Sweden, Austria, Netherlands, Hungary, Poland, Serbia), Asia (India, Japan), North America (USA) and South America (Argentina).

A highly qualified jury of international advertising film experts will now evaluate all the advertising films – as always without knowledge of who produced them – and draw up a shortlist in each category, before then deciding on the six winners (three per category) on the day of the award ceremony. The jury members this year are Lyndy Stout (editor of 1.4, an online platform for short film talents, London), Lorenzo Cefis (CEO – Executive Producer, Filmmaster Productions, Milan), Britta Poetzsch (Chief Creative Officer Campaign, Track GmbH, Hamburg), Jacques Vereecken (Creative Executive Producer, TheBoardRoom, Amsterdam) and Austen Humphries (Director, Rattling Stick, London).

The award ceremony at the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart/Zuffenhausen on 20 November 2018 marks a double anniversary: the Porsche Award is 15 years old and the Stuttgart car company is celebrating “70 years of Porsche sports cars”. The evening will be hosted by presenter, advertising expert and author Sebastian Merget, who has already presented the ADC Advertising Film Prize with great charm and humour this year.

With the non-profit Porsche International Student Advertising Film Award, the Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg as host (since 2016 in partnership with the National Film and Television School, UK) and Porsche AG as main sponsor offer junior advertising filmmakers around the world a platform on which to present their work and the chance to take the next step on the path to becoming successful professional filmmakers. The City of Ludwigsburg has also been supporting the event since the very beginning. Our international media partners this year are the specialist online publications shots and 1.4.
