Aspiring ad directors, you now have another new platform through which you can shine -- The New York Times. The publication's T Brand Studio, responsible for creating branded content and native advertising, has announced "The Selects," a program through which the studio will tap the talent of five promising young directors to help create its content.

"As a director, this is an extraordinary opportunity to be recognized on a global platform as a leading voice in native advertising and advertising video," the Studio explained on its site. "This is also a chance to create high-quality work throughout the year for some of the world's largest brands."
