Top 10 Winners

Erika Reyes Angel

Art Director
BETC
Paris, France

I’m a lesbian-androgynous-latina-with-an-accent-female-creative for the past 9 years. Needless to say, the ride has felt like a roller coaster on acids, full of exciting but scary and very challenging learning curves.

I’ve been privileged to work in different cities, from Bogotá, to São Paulo, Madrid, and last but hopefully not least, Paris. I’ve seen the lack of female leadership and inequality in the business all around, but fortunately I’ve found women at the top which have become my mentors and role models for the future. They are: Alexandra Evan (Vice-President of Publicis Conseil), Agnes Cavard and Valèrie Chidlovsky (Senior Creatives at BETC).

This year, I was given the role of mentor of the Miami Ad School students at BETC. I choose to not only teach them the technical part of the job, but also how to navigate the industry as a female or male creative starting in the business.

I try everyday to create work that is not misogynist, battling with my own engrained mysonigsm. But above all, I focus on creating the best work I can, in the hopes that one day it will talk louder than my gender. I’m not a female creative, I’m a creative.
