your creativity can change the world
A joint initiative from Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Cannes Chimera has been created to utilise the creativity and problem-solving abilities of the communications industries to do good on a global scale.
The 2013 Cannes Chimera challenge invites entrants to come up with innovative communications solutions to help put an end to extreme poverty by 2030. Up to ten winners will be selected to receive a trophy at Cannes Lions international Festival of Creativity and a grant of up to $100,000 USD to develop their ideas. They will also be flown to a two-day workshop with the Cannes Chimera, a group of some of the world's most creative people comprised of Cannes Lions 2013 Grand Prix winners.
After growing and developing their projects under the mentorship of the Chimera, each winner will have the opportunity to apply for a further grant of up to $1m USD to make their ideas a reality.
