Ogilvy Roots, a new network of BAME Ogilvy creatives, planners, designers and account handlers who share a passion for championing greater ethnic diversity within the creative industry. 

We are inviting artists to exhibit at our first Art Exhibition and networking evening in the iconic Sea Containers Building, London on Oct. 27th. This will be the official launch of Ogilvy Roots, and the exhibition will showcase a range of art and photography from the UK’s best black and minority ethnic talent. Artwork would be displayed amongst industry professionals and a night of networking with other passionate creatives and industry leaders.

We’re committed to promoting real positive change where inclusion thrives, discussion and debates prosper. We have connected with the likes of Artnicity, Project Noir and Galdem to reach out to British artists, and having seen your Instagram, would now like to approach Support Black Art to see if there are any platforms that we could utilise to reach out to more artists.


ELIGIBILITY: All artists who are dedicated to championing and celebrating diversity.

SUBMISSION: Please submit around eight pieces of work with a short bio to the email address below. 


DEADLINE: Entries must be received no later than midnight October 8th 2017
