What are the Competitions
Your Chance to show the industry what you can do
The Young Lions Competitions at Cannes Lions are unique. They give national teams of young creatives from around the world the chance to compete against each other and showcase their creative talent in a series of timed challenges.
Winning a Young Lions Competition is a hugely rewarding experience that can change your career forever. You're competing against the most talented and creative young professionals from around the world and, if you win, you'll be awarded on stage at Cannes Lions in front of the entire international communications industry.
The competitions are open to advertising professionals aged 28 or under (30 or under for the Young Marketers Competition), who are working in advertising or communications businesses. The participating teams of two people are chosen through a pre-selection process in their own country, run by our local Cannes Lions representatives.
