The One Show Creative week NYC starts today.

Adland: 

Restless young ad-pups are probably up at dawn today as this is the first day of The One Show's creative week, which means there's portfolio reviews in the morning and afternoon, and an awards ceremony at the Metropolitan Pavilion in the evening. Reviewers are established creatives big name agencies, like Leo Burnett, GSD&M, Y&R, CP+B, Digitas, Publicis, Story Worldwide, FCB, Heat, Grey, Wieden+Kennedy, MRM/McCann, Droga5, David&Goliath, R/GA, and Ogilvy. Monday and Tuesday this week you have the chance to get your portfolio torn apart by people you admire.

There's a photography exhibition too. Professional photographers donated a variety of prints for a Creative Week exhibition, including originals of Madonna, Miles Davis, Steve Jobs, Bob Dylan, Lebron James and David Bowie. The prints will be a part of a silent auction whose proceeds will go towards scholarships for students participating in One Inclusion and Diversity (One ID) programs.

On Thursday there's a comedy writers workshop, where some of the funniest guys in advertising will help you sharpen your comedy chops, hosted by Ross Chowles, Gerry Graf, Eric Silver and Bobby Hershfield.

See the full schedule at The One Show. The award ceremony will be hosted by Michael Ian Black.
