In partnership with

How does it work?

More than 2,100 students from 69 countries participate in the competition. Over 40,000 submissions from 23 categories are put through rigorous, impartial assessment by respected industry representatives, showcased in onsite exhibitions and screenings before being awarded during a number of ceremonies.

The challenge

The five global student teams submitting the best ideas will win registration to the Festival in Cannes, France, where their winning ideas will be shared on the global stage at AKQA’s Future Lions seminar.

"Winning a Future Lion is the most inspiring experience a young creative could ever have. I learned from the industry's brightest minds, made so many connections and left feeling more hungry than ever to make impactful work."
