The Young Lions Health Award is a hunt for brilliant, unique creative talent from across the communications industry.

In partnership with:

The Challenge

The Young Lions Health Award challenges individuals or teams of two to answer a brief set by UNICEF. The challenge will confront a critical real-world issue affecting children across the world.

Teams will be asked to create a video or a presentation to demonstrate how they have used creativity to solve the challenge at hand.

The Prize

Entries will be judged by a panel of experts made up of members from UNICEF and a select group of Lions Health jurors.

Winners will be invited to attend Lions Health in Cannes, where they will receive their award during the official awards show in front of thousands of experts from across the healthcare communications world.

What wins?

Original, attention-grabbing work that responds to the brief in a completely unique way goes far in this competition.

The 2017 winner was 'Not Available in your Country' by Giulia Marchi and Giovanni Santoni from Sudler & Hennessey in Italy. See last year's brief to see how you will be challenged.
