The Young Lions Health Award

Uncovering the world’s most promising creative talent


The Award

The Young Lions Health Award in association with UNICEF is back for 2017, seeking out the next generation of young talent in creative communications. This year’s competitors will once again put their creativity to the test on a brief set by UNICEF, the world’s leading organisation working for children in danger, and La Caixa Foundation.

Last year, participants were challenged to create a digital activation, print ad and video to raise awareness among caregivers about the importance of early childhood development, and this year’s challenge will be designed to confront another critical, real-world issue affecting children across the world.

The talented winner 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.

Professionals working in both advertising agencies or client organisations are invited to take part in this year’s competition.
