Agency Exchange

Agency Exchange is the new educational programme promoted by ADCE in collaboration with all participant agencies and studios. It matches creatives and agencies/studios that are willing to share their knowledge and learn from different working methods and cultures.

Not only is it a fantastic way for creatives to develop their professional skills while working abroad without quitting their job, but it also allows agencies to benefit from a wide range of talents from other cultures, countries and backgrounds. The 2022 application process is already closed.

The six creatives taking part this year are: Emma Varotti (Italian) from Caffeina will do the exchange with Pauline Marie Korp (Estonian, working in Finland) from hasan & partners; Alexander Javakhishvili (Georgian) from JWT Metro will do it with Michaela Brůhová (Czech Republic) from Triad Advertising; and Līva Arnava (Latvian) from WKND will exchange with Riccardo Bruno (Italian) from Caffeina.

Who can apply?

Professionals with a minimum of 2 years of experience currently working in an agency or design studio.


  • For ADCE members only. If you’re a member of any of the 23 ADCE Member Clubs, you are automatically an ADCE member. Check if you are registered as an ADCE Member or sign up.
  • Make sure your agency or studio also wants to take part in this opportunity as a host.
  • English must be the common language in the hosting team during the exchange period.

Carefully read all information & rules.

IMPORTANT: This is an exchange programme. The agency that sends a creative is expected to host one in return, with the same conditions.
