The next generation of creative stars go head-to-head, working on a live brief during the Festival week and proving themselves on the world-stage in the process.
What are they?
From marketers to aspiring creative directors, there’s a competition to suit people from every corner of the communications industry. Competitors have just 24 hours to answer a brief set by a non-profit organisation and over 400 contestants work in teams to battle it out, so it’s the perfect opportunity to put their talent in the spotlight.
All work is judged by members of the Cannes Lions juries and the Gold-winning team from each competition collects its medal during a prestigious Cannes Lions awards show, as well as receiving complimentary registrations and accommodation at the following year’s Festival.
How to enter
The competitions are open to those aged 30 or under who currently work within creative communications.
Participants first need to prove themselves as the best of the best in their own country. Our network of Representatives run local competitions to select teams in the lead-up to the Festival, with winners going into the final round of the competition at Cannes Lions.
A list of Representatives can be found here. Please get in touch if you have any questions.
