YOUNG LIONS DESIGN COMPETITION

The Young Lions Design Competition gives graphic and other specialist designers the space to showcase their talent and test their skills against the rest of the industry. Teams of two are required to deliver a brand identity in response to a brief set by a charity or NGO.

THE CHALLENGE

Following the briefing by the client, teams of two have just 24 hours to use the competition area and equipment to create and deliver a brand identity that includes a logo/brand, a 150-word description of how the brand identity fits the brief and a 150-word description of how the brand would evolve.

THE PRIZE

The Young Lions Design Competition Jury, made up of the shortlisting jury from Cannes Lions, will judge the work and crown a Bronze, Silver and Gold winner at a live winners announcement.

The winners will be celebrated at the Cannes Lions Award show later that week with Gold winners collecting their award on stage.
