Calling all young creatives: Last day to register for the Cannes Young Lions Competition
Register now for this year’s Young Lions Film competition, part of the annual Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity and take your best shot at winning some serious glory!
Once again, Ster-Kinekor Sales is the official representative in South Africa for the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, which takes place from 22 to 26 June 2020. They are also sponsoring the local leg of the Film category of the Young Lions competition. As such, they are calling for registrations from teams comprising two young professionals or freelancers (an art director and a copywriter, both aged 30 or younger and born on or after 22 June 1989), who currently work as art directors, producers, filmmakers and creatives.
Here’s how it works:
- Teams must register for the South African competition between Tuesday 18 February and 12h00 on Friday the 28th of February.
- Send your registration to firstname.lastname@example.org
- A brief will be published on Friday 28 February 2020 from 12h00.
- Once the brief goes live, your team will have just 48 hours to film, edit and deliver a 60-second commercial on the topic provided.
- All creative must be submitted by Monday 2 March 2020 before 12h00 – after that, it’s all up to the panel of judges…
The lucky and no doubt super-talented winners will be announced on Thursday, 13 March 2020. If your team is the one that makes the cut, the two of you will go on to represent South Africa in France at the 66th Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity. There you will compete against other winning teams from around the world for the ultimate prestige of being crowned this year’s Young Lions!
The Young Lions competition puts a spotlight on some of the world’s best young creative talent. If you’re keen to experience the Cannes festival and grow both personally and professionally, then this is your golden opportunity – a chance to showcase your abilities on a world stage.
So, what are you waiting for?
