As food for thought, see our Festival campaign featuring some of the most well-known British ads which was created by student competition winners Scarlett Chetwin, Oliver Servini and Sheona Turnbull from Kingston University. Watch it here. 

The ad has been brought to life by director, Theo Delaney at Watchable, edited at Cut & Run with sound design by Wave, casting by Camilla Arthur and post-production by Smoke & Mirrors.

In addition to the student competition, the IPA also ran one for the industry to publicise the Festival. This was won by Chapter’s Art Director Jenny Green and Deputy Creative Director Paul Ray, whose ad showcases the cultural impact of advertising on British society and also features some of Britain’s most well-known ads.


The IPA Festival of British Advertising in March will celebrate the IPA's centenary and the very best of British creativity from the past 100 years. The exhibition will delve into the past, present and future of advertising: from the earliest print ads to the latest virtual reality technology. It will also feature a series of events with leading figures from the world of advertising and entertainment.

To find out more about the Festival, please visit and use #adfest100.
