Julius Wieprecht, an intern at ITMS Marketing with a focus in design, has received a highly coveted scholarship after winning a competition organized by the Städel Museum, Liebieghaus Skulpturensammlung and Schirn Kunsthalle, the three most important cultural institutions in Frankfurt am Main.
The award is part of the area project “Art Talents.”
Teachers from different schools recommended gifted students for the competition, who were then selected for the program based off of an entrance exam. The aim of the one-year program is the development and consistent promotion of aesthetically gifted young individuals. Under the guidance of art teachers and artists, the 13 students selected received twice weekly insights into the three sponsoring art institutions, museums and galleries while experiencing the cultural diversity of the greater Frankfurt area. In addition, the students work on their own exhibits within the Städel Museum, with different materials that will be presented in a larger exhibition at the end of the program.

“The scholarship has helped me to collect new artistic experiences and set new directions for my life,” said Wieprecht.
Julius currently attends eleventh grade at the Technical School of Visual Art at the Johann-Philipp-Reis-Schule Friedberg. He is currently also gaining valuable hands-on experience in ITMS’ creative design department as part of a mandatory one-year internship at the agency.
For the Bad Nauheim agency, the development of young talent is a top priority. Student internships are continuously offered in all of the agency’s areas of expertise, from advertising and design to public relations and event marketing.
“We are always open to welcoming young individuals who are driven to learn as part of our team. The advertising industry is very appealing to many talented individuals, and a student internship is a good opportunity to get a first impression of the work required behind the scenes,” said ITMS Account Director Carolin Pascal.
