Several weeks ago, hundreds of young creative hopefuls gathered both virtually and in cities all over the world to take part in Portfolio Night 2022, showing off their work to some of the best industry professionals in their respective cities. 

Just about everybody walked away with sound advice to improve their portfolios, and some even received offers of internships or even jobs. But only a select few — the best of the best — were named Portfolio Night All-Stars, chosen to come together with other global All-Stars to work on a real-world creative brief.

Hasan Issa, a talented young designer, graphic design, photographer based in Cairo, is among the latest group of Portfolio Night All-Stars, the top young creatives as selected by industry professionals from each of the city hosts around the world who participated in its Portfolio Night 2022, held in June. 

“Portfolio Night is a gateway for young talent to enter the industry, enabling the best of the present — hundreds of renowned international creative directors — to meet and mentor the leaders of the future in industry hubs around the world,” said Kevin Swanepoel, CEO, The One Club for Creativity. “Hasan was selected as one of the best of this year’s participants, and we’re excited to see what creative ideas he and his team come up with.”

Long recognized as the world’s largest advertising portfolio review program, The One Club for Creativity’s Portfolio Night is a fast-paced evening of advice, networking and recruitment that takes place in dozens of cities across the globe to help the next generation of creative talent enter the industry.  

A highlight of this one-of-a-kind program is Portfolio Night All-Stars, where industry professionals from each host city select young creatives in their market with the best portfolios.  

Portfolio Night All-Stars are usually flown to New York, courtesy of The One Club and program sponsors, to spend a week working as a team on a creative brief for a major global brand.

However, like last year due to the pandemic, the 2022 program will be held virtually, with All-Stars working August 22-29 on creative briefs. The 22 All-Stars from 13 different countries will team together online to crack one of five creative briefs. They will be divided into five groups, each working with a creative team from Bulletproof New York, Butler Shine Stern & Partners Sausalito, FCB Toronto, McCann Global Health or McCann Health New York, who will provide virtual mentoring and judging.

Portfolio Night 2022 city hosts were Adcetera Houston, ADK Taipei, Africa São Paulo, Alma DDB Miami, BBDO India/DDB Mundra Group/TBWA\India Mumbai and Pan-India, BBDO Singapore, Chicago Portfolio School Chicago, Círculo de Creatividad Argentina and GUT Buenos Aires, Clube Criativos Lisbon, Dieste Dallas, DDB Colombia Bogotá, DDB Paris, Duke Advertising Cape Town, Goodby Silverstein & Partners San Francisco, Inbrax Santiago, Media.Monks Madrid, Re-Be Seoul, SuperHeroes Amsterdam, Tank Worldwide Montreal, The One Club-Cairo Chapter Cairo, VMLY&R London, and Wunderman Thompson Finland Helsinki.

Since starting in 2003, Portfolio Night has taken place in 70 cities across 45 countries, with more than 10,000 portfolios reviewed.  

Branding for this year’s program was created by 2014 Portfolio Night All-Star Katlego Phatlane, based in Johannesburg.
