Registration for Cinemark’s Cannes Young Lions competition opened today, 1 February, giving all dynamic and ambitious creatives a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to represent South Africa in the Young Lions Competition at this year’s 63rd Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity.
“This competition is truly unique. It affords a team of creatives aged 30 years and under the opportunity to experience the Cannes Lions Competitor Pass, valued at at €1295 (R23 098) per person plus other perks, sponsored by Cinemark. The experience in Cannes is priceless, incomparable to say the least,” says Yvonne Diogo, marketing manager and account executive for media sales at Cinemark.
Open from 09h00, registration for the Young Lions Competition is a must for any local creative. It could see the winning pair off to win other international awards, allowing them to carve out a distinctive career profile within the market place. It also provides an international platform on which to demonstrate their talent, Diogo explains.
A team from Joe Public won the Cinemark Young Lions Competition in 2014 and their ad went on to win a Bronze Lion in the Promo and Activations Category and a Silver One Show.
The local leg of Cannes Young Lions will this year see a panel of South African judges, who have been chosen because they are the best of the best. These esteemed individuals will be deciding whose lives will be changed forever.
Local winners of Cannes Young Lions will receive a prize that includes flights to France, accommodation, a full weeks Young Lions Registration and entry into the International Cannes Young Lions Competition. This year’s international competition takes place from 18 to 25 June.
