A Gardens student is heading to New York to represent Cape Town.

Tshegofatso Mogotsi-Phetlhe – currently a marketing and advertising communications student at Red andamp; Yellow marketing school – has been selected as the Cape Town representative for this year’s Art Directors Club Portfolio Night.

Portfolio Night, which brings together thousands of advertising industry youngsters, hundreds of creative directors and dozens of agencies from around the world, sees the young creatives pitch their portfolios to directors from leading ad agencies.

This is the second year running that a student from the school has been selected as the All Star at the Cape Town Portfolio Night – last year, it was Mogotsi-Phetlhe’s fellow student Grethe Meissner.

Her prize is a trip to the global All Stars event in New York, where she’ll join All Stars from around the world to work on a brand campaign. Mogotsi-Phetlhe will also have an opportunity to meet some of the world’s top advertising executives.
