Real Life Experience at a Real Life Advertising Agency

Do you want to receive hands-on experience by working with a Pittsburgh advertising agency on a real-world project, with a local non-profit organization? thePitch places student teams at advertising agencies across Pittsburgh and offers the hands-on opportunity to pitch a real marketing plan to a real non-profit organization. Unfortunately, this year had other plans, but please stay tuned for updates.

A message from our Education Chair, Rebecca Senneway:

Thank you to everyone who has supported thePitch year after year. Due to the obvious (I refuse to say it) – unprecedented – (darn it) circumstances, we have decided to both delay and reframe the AAF Pittsburgh’s annual challenge. Our current, yet fluid, plan is to host thePitch next spring (2022). This will give us time to work with the agencies to formulate a system and time for educators and students to get a semester of learning under their belts, in whatever fashion it looks like. So, please stay tuned. If you’d like to be added to our email list for Education / thePitch related updates, please shoot me an email and we’ll be sure to keep you in the loop.

Stay safe, wear a mask and get the vaccine!

AAF Pittsburgh Education Chair, Rebecca Senneway
