AMP3 launches “CAMP3”: a PR Boot Camp for Fashion Communication Students
We are proud to announce the launch of our PR Boot Camp series, dubbed “CAMP3,” designed to mentor college students studying PR, Marketing and Communications in New York City and the surrounding region.
The inaugural CAMP3 PR boot camp will take place at our SoHo headquarters on June 30th, and will serve as an incubator for the next generation of industry professionals and leaders. The event is focused on fostering the most dedicated young talent, with the goal of encouraging best practices, to shape and lead the fashion PR industry forward.
Interested students can apply to be selected for a coveted seat at the PR table. There they will receive a full day of complimentary real world training from the AMP3 team, as well as guest speakers including a journalist who will speak to the do’s and don’ts of working with the media, and a notable influencer who will demystify the role of the influencer in today’s brand marketing landscape. There will also be sessions on pitch creation, social media publicity tactics and analysis, how to excel at a PR internship, an NYFW crash course, and a Q&A with the agency’s co-founders, Alyson Roy and Dion Roy.
“Supporting and building each other up is an important part of our company culture,” says Alyson Roy, “There is a cut-throat stigma associated with Fashion PR, so at AMP3, we make educating and inspiring the next generation a priority. Our agency relies on a strong mix of industry veterans and newcomers with the belief that we all have something of value to learn from each other—and now we’re offering up our combined expertise to those who will become the future of our industry.”
After a highly selective acceptance process, 10 students will be accepted to participate and will be treated to breakfast by Baz Bagels, lunch by Dig Inn, and sweet treats courtesy of Magnolia Bakery, as well as “CAMP3 Survival Kits” including notepads from Rifle Paper Co, books from The Intern Queen, and other fun goodies.
