FCLA 2024 Project Brief

About FCLA | Submission Portal | Past Winners


The Future Creative Leaders Academy (FCLA), a youth program of the Pitcher Festival of Creativity, provides an intensive learning platform for students in universities and tertiary institutions. It aims to inspire and immerse hopeful professionals into the world of advertising and marketing communications. As we gear up for the 2025 session, we recognize the need to raise awareness about FCLA within universities and departments relevant to our field.
