Gerry Graf: Comic fan.
The One Club, the society for creative professionals in the advertising business, is offering an impressive list of prizes for anyone who plays its "Wheel of Karma" game, including access to top brass at agencies like Wieden + Kennedy, Goodby, Silverstein & Partners, Y&R and JWT.
Prizes include a job shadow for a day at Wieden + Kennedy and coffee with ECDs Susan Hoffman and Joe Staples; and a tour of Leo Burnett Chicago followed by a special dinner with CCO Susan Credle and the agency’s chief recruiter at the internationally acclaimed Alinea by chef Grant Achatz.
The intent of the game is to get creatives to become more familiar with the portfolios of their rivals and colleagues. Participants must review work nominated for the One Show — the club's ad awards — and then spin a wheel to see if they earn a prize.
Be careful what you wish for, though. There are also some slightly offbeat things to be won, such as a trip to Midtown Comics in New York with Gerry Graf, founder and creative director at Barton F. Graf 9000 and a karaoke night with JWT North American CCO Jeff Benjamin.
