About event

During the development program Battle for the White House you will become unscrupulous PR experts who would do anything to succeed. Your job is to create your own media reality, and thus influence the public opinion. You will create video spots, press releases, radio content and advertisement for the campaign - simply everything to get your candidate the presidential post.

Fictional campaign of two teams

The game starts with a news program which informs the viewers (and the participants) about the upcoming elections and the battle for the White House, how many votes can each candidate expect in that point of time, and most importantly about a shocking incident concerning one of them. Afterwards, participants are divided into two consulting election teams which have to use all their wits and skills to build the best media image of their candidate. They literally aim at "pushing" their candidate into the presidential chair.

Creating a strategy and media outputs

In your team you will create a PR strategy to win over media and public, monitor your opponents' strategy, reflect upon your own work and check the results of public opinion polls in a limited time frame. After several rounds of hard work, the program ends by the new president's election and inauguration. This creative part is followed by a discussion or reflection let by experienced facilitators.
